Derwent Reservoir

We followed the route guide from Peak District Top 10 Waterside Walks available here: with a difference. The stated guide is for a 5.5 mile route, starting with a Bus from the Car Park, and the return by foot.

Unfortunately, the bus service does not run at all times, so as it is a flat walk, we completed the bus portion on foot – making an 11 mile circular route.

Parking at Fairholmes Visitor Centre pay-and-display car park.
