Cycle around Ladybower

We drove over to Ladybower Reservoir in Derbyshire and cycled around the three dams with my son William. We parked just before Fairholmes  and cycled along the road to  Derwent Reservoir then Howden Reservoir and over the old packhorse bridge at Slippery Stones and back round the other side to Ladybower Reservoir.

Great day out! And the last proper day out as William got a job soon after and most of his time currently is spent revising for exams or working. Hopefully we’ll do it again in the not too distant future

Photo365 – Day 115 – Packhorse Bridge

I took the cycle out to Ladybower today and cycled round the 25km route to Packhorse Bridge at Slippery Stones and back. Today’s photo365 is the bridge, a 17th century one, moved upstream brick by brick when the reservoir was created.
It’s the first time I’ve been back to this spot for about 20 years. An enjoyable cycle ride in the company of my son William, included a stop off at Fairholmes for a sausage and bacon sarnie.
