Bus services in Swaledale will be affected over the next few weeks by a road closure between Muker and Thwaite. The B6270 road will be closed to all traffic, including pedestrians and cyclists, near Usha Gap for several weeks.
The Little White Bus Swaledale Shuttle service 30 will operate between Richmond and Muker at the usual times, but will not serve Thwaite or Keld. The Northern DalesBus 831 will divert via Carperby and Askrigg to Hawes - it won't serve Low Row, Gunnerside, Muker, the Buttertubs Pass or Simonstone.

We're puzzled. "Closed to all traffic...for several weeks" sounds bad enough, but North Yorkshire Council's roadworks site currently says "Muker To Thwaite, road closure 28 Sep 08:00 - 23 Nov 17:00" - which would mean Thwaite and Keld will be inaccessible, except from Hawes and Kirkby Stephen, for the best part of two months. Is that right? Someone please enlighten us.
