Ladybower Reservoir

5 miles (8 km)

Enjoy a lovely waterside walk along the western shore of this large reservoir in the Peak District. The walk begins at the parking area at the northern end of Upper Ladybower reservoir and follows a good walking trail to Lower Ladybower Reservoir. The route passes through some pleasant woodland and has wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. Other walking trails lead up into the surrounding hills where you can enjoy great views over the reservoir.
If you would like to continue your walk you could climb to the spectacular geological rock formations of Alport Castles. You could also pick up the Derwent Valley Heritage Way which runs past the southern end of the reservoir.
A short climb to the east of the reservoir you will find the exhilarating Bamford Edge. From here you can enjoy fabulous views back across the water.
Also of interest are the wonderful climbs to Derwent Edge and Stanage Edge while the adjacent Derwent Reservoir also has some nice waterside paths.
