Barmoor Clough

This is, as stated on the postcard, Barmour Clough just before you get to Dove Holes on the way from Chapel.
Here is the last roundabout on the bypass scheme.
The building on the far side of the road was the Clough Inn, demolished in the 1950's.
It was formerly known as the Bold Hector.
You can see Bennettstone Hall in the distance built by a Mr Bennett from Buxton who also built a full street in Buxton and imaginatively called it Bennett Street.
The last occupier of the Hall was a Mr Gerry Adshead who died there; his remains are buried at the site of the Clough Inn.

Interestingly as today Camra has highlighted the loss of 31 pubs per week in Britain Dove Holes once had six and now has only one.
