Circumnavigation of the Derwent reservoirs; Ladybower, Upper Derwent, Howden - all constructed between 1901 and 1945, most famous for practice sessions by the "Dambusters" squadron in preparation for what became one of the most important and famous RAF missions ever undertaken in WW2

General Notes
In August it might be possible to glimpse the flooded villages of Ashopton and Derwent, but there can be no guarantees, obviously. The Fairholmes Visitors Centre may be used for toilets and snacks half way around this figure of eight route
