Win Hill Walk from Ladybower Reservoir

There’s some excellent walking around the Upper Derwent Valley, and they don’t get much better than this walk up Win Hill from Ladybower Reservoir. Starting off from the Heatherdene Car Park the route heads off over the Ladybower Dam before heading south to Thornhill along the Derwent Valley Heritage Way. The route then heads up the south-western flanks of Win Hill ascending to the summit steeply.

The view from the summit is extensive, including a view over Ladybower Reservoir. It’s then north east along the moorland before descending down to join the Ladybower Reservoir Bridleway. This excellent track on the southern shore makes good going for the return leg back to Heatherdene.
