Sunday evening I walked from Lyme Park to the Grove via Torkington Lane, its dark. A car stops me next to Torkington Manor and a bloke shouts out 'were you in the bushes?', confused I said, 'I was in the bushes to avoid the cars','ok mate' he says, turns his car around and races back up Torkington Lane. On the way down I had to step into bushes and driveways to avoid a speeding Sainsburys van, Range Rover and others trying to break land speed records. So the choice I have in future is Torkington lane with paranoid house owners, speeding motorist or walk down Buxton Road with the pollution from heavy goods vehicles and cars

Torkington lane is a 60mph zone so would expect fast moving cars. Walking down there at night is pretty silly unless you're wearing hi-vis clothing.

Not sure what you're after?

Is it possible he was asking if you wanted company in the bushes? Just a thought...

It's ridiculous that Torkington is a 60mph road but even if it were a 30 there would be no one to police it.
its too scary for me even in daylight.
