Within their ‘Temporary Road Closure Notice’ a spokesman for Derbyshire County Council said: “High Street, South Normanton between Church Street and Market Street, will be closed 8th May to 10th May; to facilitate installing one new water connection from main in carriageway to customer.”

The spokesman continued to set out the alternative route which will be set out for drivers: “Fordbridge Lane, Primrose Hill, Alfreton Road, Chesterfield Road, High Street, Mansfield Road, Carnfield Hill, Market Street and vice versa.”
They continued: “Access will be maintained, whenever reasonably possible, on the affected length of road.
