We went here last week on very warm day. We did a 7 mile around it. A mix of sun and shade. Plenty of wildlife to be seen. It was a really enjoyable and relaxing day.

We approached the reservoir from Bamford & watched what we assumed to be fishing boats. Many birds to osbserve including herons & water fowl. Peaceful & well worth a visit.

Stunning views and a good walk around the reservoir. Not recommended for anyone with disability. No better place to be on a warm, sunny spring day

One of the highlights of Derbyshire countryside especially this month with the 75th anniversary of the Dam Busters, if you have never visited then shame on you, plenty of walks and places to stop, more than well worth a visit.

Driving over the Snake Pass (A57) from Manchester to Sheffield, stopped by one of the highlights of the drive - Ladybower Reservoir. A man-made water storage reservoir supplying drinking water to Sheffield. Simply stunning beauty in the Peak District.

I've walked this area more times than I care to think about. Young or old, there's a walk for everyone. My spiritual home... wonderful.

It's a long walk around the reservoir, some along the road. There is a visitor centre with information on various walks. We ate at the Yorkshire Bridge Inn in Bamford - excellent, a short drive away.
