Over Haddon
Over Haddon is a small village in Derbyshire. It is located near Bakewell.
Over Haddon overlooks Lathkill Dale and the River Lathkill, which may be crossed by a clapper bridge on a footpath running south from the village. It has two churches, a public house, and a car park.
Lathkill Dale
Lathkill Dale is a steep sided valley in the Peak District. It is formed by the River Lathkill. The valley runs from near Monyash to Alport.
River Lathkill
In times of high rainfall the source of the river is Lathkill Head Cave, but in normal conditions the river rises from springs slightly further down the valley, close to the village of Monyash, west of Bakewell, and flows generally eastward past the village of Over Haddon and through the village of Alport (where it is joined by the River Bradford) until it meets the River Wye near Rowsley. Roughly six and a half miles from source to outfall, it is the only river in the district that flows over limestone for its entire length.
The river valley, known as Lathkill Dale, is popular with tourists who visit to enjoy its natural beauty and wildlife.
