Ladybower Reservoir in Spring

Ladybower Reservoir in Spring

Ladybower Reservoir in Spring isn’t always the driest of places. However today, apart from the cold wind it was glorious. We parked on the Sheffield side of Ashopton Viaduct and walked up Crook Hill. From there we completed a 13km circuit taking in Ouzelden Clough, Derwent Dam and the Northern arm of Ladybower Reservoir. Not the longest of walks but with the glorious sun and the hills greening up a rewarding walk.

Here are a few of the images we took, more to follow later in the weekend when we’ve had a good rest. Ladybower Reservoir in Spring may be beautiful but now we’re a bit tired, especially as I was tasked with mowing the lawns when I got home.You can read more about the Upper Derwent Valley here and here.
