The upper Derwent reservoirs is a chain of three impressive manmade lakes—the Howden, the Derwent, and the Ladybower—that snake through Peak District National Park in the north of England. Controlled by two Gothic-style masonry dams and one large earth bank, they were constructed in the rural Derwent Valley during the first half of the 20th century, and went on to serve an unexpected military purpose during World War II as a practice field for the bombing raids known as Operation Chastise.

Nearby Hope Valley is one of the best-loved parts of the Peak District National Park, offering some of the best views and most picturesque villages in the country. This unique part of Derbyshire is home to classic Peak District walks such as Winnats Pass, Mam Tor and the Great Ridge is arguably the most photographed area of the whole National Park!
