Walk d271 Winhill Pike (Win Hill) from Yorkshire Bridge

A steady but gentle ascent to superb views

Two villages lie beneath the surface of Ladybower Reservoir. The 1943-1945 construction necessitated Derwent & Ashopton to be completely flooded. Derwent Dam was used to train crews for the famous low level Dambusters attack on the Ruhr dams during World War II. It was used again to film scenes for the 1954 film of the event.
