A Walk Around Derwent Reservoir – January 2022

The first walk of 2022 with a friend. The pictures are all from my phone camera and not the trusty but antediluvian Canon 30D, so not as good quality.

Derwent Reservoir was formed by damming the river Derwent at the village of Derwent and was completed in 1916. The village is now underwater but apparently the ruins can be seen if there is an exceptionally dry summer.

You can walk around the whole reservoir – it’s around 6 miles but a bit ‘up and down’.

The Dam itself is very impressive!

These pictures and videos are @Aidan Parr 2022, so please ask permission if you want to use them. I’ll probably say ‘yes’!
