Howden Dam
Howden Dam
The dam separating Howden Reservoir from Derwent. Derwent dam, lower down the valley, in turn separates Derwent reservoir from Ladybower. This was the series of dams used during World War II for the dambusters to practice, before their famous raid on dams on the Rühr in Germany. The nearer of the two towers is within the square, the further one is just out.
