Derwent Dams   

 - Oak Farm Holiday Cottages in The Peak District

The Ladybower, Howden and Derwent reservoirs dominate the upper Derwent valley in The Peak District National Park.  The upper two dams are The Howden and The Derwent and these were constructed in a gothic style and were both finished in 1916. Initially The Derwent Dam and The Howden Dam do look the same, although there are some differences.

The Derwent reservoir was used by the RAF’s Dambusters 617 Squadron to practice their low level flying techniques during 1943, in preparation for delivering Barnes Wallis’ famous bouncing bombs to German dams. The 617 Squadron Dambusters Memorial is located just inside the gatehouse to the Western Tower of The Derwent Dam.

There is a lot of recreational activities available near the Howden and Derwent dams including cycle hire, plenty of footpaths and bridleways, fishing, and walking.The Fairholmes Visitors Centre located very near to The Derwent Dam has information, refreshments and cycle hire.  Open all year to the public this area attracts over 2 million visitors a year.
