Right in the heart of the Peak District, Ladybower Reservoir is a well-known beauty spot. This walk combines a waterside walk with a hike over Derwent Edge, one of the great ridges in this part of the world. There are good bus links to the Ladybower Inn from Sheffield, on the route serving Bakewell and Bamford.
