Chairman's Welcome

Curbar parish is located in the beautiful Peak District National Park, where panoramic views and settings are valued by residents and visitors alike. .

This website includes a wealth of information about the council and the village, which I hope you find useful. You may also be interested in visiting the recently restored telephone box on Curbar Hill, which includes a map of the village, places of interest and a leaflet rack advising visitors of venues and events in the area.

For walkers, we invite you to take a breather, have refreshments or just admire the scenery on any of the seven benches we provide from the bridge at the bottom of Curbar Hill up to Curbar Edge car park. In order to maintain Curbar's calm and natural beauty, we appreciate when people respect our landscape and countryside, observe speed limits, park sensibly and clean up after their dogs.

I would like to welcome you to the Curbar Parish Council website, which will be updated regularly with news, events and further information of interest.

Curbar Burial Ground

Posted: Mon, 22 Mar 2021 10:28 by Sarah Nicholas

The Curbar, Calver and Froggatt Joint Burial Committee, which was formed in May 1969, will cease to exist on 31st March 2021 and the management of the Burial Ground in the future will be undertaken by Curbar Parish Council. This change arises as a result of government legislation requiring burial committees to come directly under the control of a host council which in this case will be Curbar Parish Council. More »

Curbar PC has always owned the burial ground, although it has been managed separately by the Curbar, Calver and Froggatt Joint Burial Committee for the benefit of the residents of Curbar, Calver and Froggatt since 1969.

This change will make no difference to residents' entitlement to be interred in the Burial Ground.

Many thanks must go to David Nicholson, the Chair of Curbar, Calver and Froggatt Joint Burial Committee, who has been invaluable in enabling the necessary changes to be brought about.

Bowls at Baslow Sports Field

Posted: Tue, 16 Mar 2021 08:56 by Sarah Nicholas

Some of you will have watched indoor bowls on the TV during lockdown but did you know there is a fabulous outdoor green just a short distance from where you live? Baslow Sports Field is perhaps best known for its fabulous cricket and football pitches but just around the corner is the equally fabulous bowls green complete with its own pavilion and car parking. More »

It is a really friendly little club, with bowls for beginners and those wishing to play in local leagues. It's a great way to keep fit and flexible without being too strenuous. We also have a vibrant social calendar all year round with club competitions, friendlies, events, lunches and dinners out.

The club is now seeking new members for the 2021 season so we will be holding a free taster session on Saturday 15 May (Covid rules permitting) from 11am down at the bowls green at Baslow Sports Field. We have all the equipment you need as well as some trained coaches on hand. It's a really easy sport to keep social distance and everything will be fully sanitised before any play takes place. There is lots of free parking and a loo right next to the pavilion. If you wish to book a slot at the taster session or would prefer a private taster, please contact Helen on 07734448832 or email bbc.baslow@gmail.com and we'll look forward to meeting you.
