November 25 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm GMT

A challenging but absolutely stunning walk in the Peak District. If you enjoy rock formations then this one is for you!


An “edgy” Peak District walk, starting from Lady Bower Reservoir (once the largest reservoir in England and where the Dam Busters practised using their bouncing bombs). The walk begins from Fairholme’s visitor centre, where there is a cafe, gift shop and toilets (only toilets on route), leading to the impressive megastructure known as the Lady Bower Dam. The route begins with a gradual incline following the Reservoir, passing the “Lost Drowned Village”, where Derwent village once stood. The path winds slowly up through farmland up to moorland, reaching Derwent Edge, boasting magnificent views over Hope Valley; on a clear day, you’ll see Kinder Scout and Mam Tor. As the route continues, there will be plenty of fascinating rock outcrops to explore, including Hurkling Stones, The Salter Cellar and Cakes of Bread! Further on, reaching the highest point, you’ll be greeted by the splendid Back Tor. It has a trig point, 538 meters above sea level. The route will descend, passing Lost Lad with an attractive Way Marker and Cairn. The final stage of the walk involves meandering through moorlands to the Forests, with its delightful bubbling brooks, towards the reservoir. The walk concludes where it started, at the visitor centre.

Approx walking time with a break is 5 hours.

Car Park is pay and display. £4.75 all day.

Two Ethels and one Trig.

Please use what3words for the car park. Thank you.
