Points of Interest/Notes on this walk:
While Derwent Dam in The Peak District was used to train crews for the famous low level Dambusters attack on the Ruhr dams during World War II (& to film scenes for the 1954 film of the event) Barnes Wallace used the small 35ft Nant-y-Gro Dam for the initial tests for his revolutionary 'bouncing bomb'.
