The dams of the Upper Derwent create an iconic landscape and this walk looks at how the building of the dams changed that landscape. We visit old wells, hear the story of Bamford Mill and tales of myth and legend. A gentle start leads to a steep climb of Win Hill giving fantastic views of the Hope Valley and Upper Derwent. We return by crossing Ladybower Dam with views of the plugholes. Suitable for older children (7+) used to walking similar distances over varied terrain.
