Derbyshire footpath project completed

Renovation work has been carried out on a 2.5 mile (4km) stretch of footpath in Derbyshire.

The Matlock Spur, which joins the Limestone Way at Bonsall, has had 12 stiles replaced with self-closing gates, Derbyshire County Council said.

County councillor Chris Jackson encouraged walkers to use the footpath with its "stunning views of the countryside from Masson Hill".

The county council's rangers' service carried out most of the work.
