This trail in the Peak District National Park begins at the Cutthroat Bridge layby on Manchester Road (A57), following Highshaw Clough before veering westward.

The ascent passes Winstone Lee Tor to reach Derwent Edge, a stunning Millstone Grit escarpment offering panoramic views over the Upper Derwent Valley.

The path continues along the edge, passing White Tor to Back Tor, the highest point, and descends towards Lost Lad, marked by a memorial.

The descent continues to the tranquil banks of Ladybower Reservoir, which, constructed between 1935 and 1943, involved the flooding of Derwent and Ashopton villages.

The trail follows Derwent Lane along Ladybower Reservoir, leading to Ashopton Viaduct and back to the car park, offering captivating views of the surrounding landscape throughout.

There is a pub is called "Ladybower Inn" and is a 2 minute's drive from the car park https://maps.app.goo.gl/nEfE3545oWmhwFGu6


People are of course free to leave whenever they wish and do not need to wait for anyone else. 

Ideally, we will get photos in the car park before we start, at the summit and in the pub afterwards. 


Recommended Equipment -

  • High ankle waterproof walking boots - Trainers will not be suitable, the ground is very rough and it will be very wet and muddy.

  • Warm clothing

  • Waterproof jacket

  • Gloves

  • 2 Litres of water

  • Energy snacks + a small lunch

  • Blister plasters (If you are prone to blisters I recommend you put the plasters on before the walk) - Amazon Link
