In late November 2023, following heavy rainfall, a seven-meter section of the Brough retaining wall collapsed. The retaining wall supports the B6049 Stretfield Road through Brough village which runs alongside the Bradwell Brook; Stretfield Road is the main route between the A6187 Hope Road (and the A623 in the south). On Monday 17 June 2024 a major 12-week project began to rebuild the retaining wall; this includes closure of the B6049 Stretfield Road. Derbyshire County Council (DCC) recognises the B6049 closure will impact many residents (including impacting bus services). There is a live DCC webpage www.derbyshire.gov.uk/broughretainingwall with details and updates on all Brough works – including shuttle bus arrangements and links to altered bus timetables.

The Parish Council notes the B6049 closure, along with other Summer road closures in and around the Hope Valley, are likely to impact Hathersage businesses and have flagged concerns with DCC.
