A lovely spot for leaving the car and walking, an added bonus is the footpath has been created with a cycle path alongside making it much safer for cycling.Fairly flat pavement walking, but with the bonus of hilly footpaths around the far side of the dam

Who would name a reservoir after a royal? Should be Ashopton or Derwent Reservoir after the flooded villages beneath. My Dad remembered staying in Derwent Hall in the 30s, before the flooding and the naming of it after a gin-sodden gambler
