As I now have to pay for travel for about a week or so I'm determined to get it for as cheap as possible...
So I was thinking about a Derbyshire Wayfarer...
I have to get a bus from Buxton to Derby and then a train from Derby to Leicester. Would a Wayfarer cover this? I know Leicester isn't in Derbyshire, but I heard one of my bus drivers saying that it's okay if one end of the journey is in the county...
Midland Mainline tend to be more strict about things like that though, would they let me to Leicester with it? If not, are there any other cheap alternatives?

I need to know soon cause I'm off down there at 6am tomorrow
