Enjoying the Peak District One Hill At A Time

Walking Around a Misty Ladybower Reservoir

Walking Around a Misty Ladybower Reservoir

Despite the mist and slight drizzle we decided to take a quick walk from the Ladybower Dam up to the first bridge on the River Ashopton today. It was a steady 9 degrees all the way so the 12km walk was too taxing, though I can feel it in my legs now as as we walked it at a brisk pace. I also had to carry out a sheep rescue as one of the Derbyshire Gritstone ewes had become entangled in brambles at the side of the reservoir and was completely trapped. It took me about ten minutes and a lot of puncture wounds from the vicious thorns to free her. By the time she bounded off with what I like to believe was a “thank you” bleat she was covered in blood, not hers, mine and as far as I could tell she wasn’t injured.
