Make way for sheep
This packhorse bridge crosses the River Derwent at a place known as Slippery Stones. It is a three quarter mile walk beyond the furthest parking place in the Derwent Valley alongside Howden Reservoir to reach here. The 17th century packhorse bridge was originally at Derwent village whose site was submerged when the Ladybower Reservoir was built between 1935 and 1945. According to a plaque on the bridge it was re-erected here at Slippery Stones in 1959 by public subscription as a memorial to John Derry "who inspired in others his love for the Derbyshire and Yorkshire hills."

The bridge is just a footbridge but is not only used by pedestrians but also by sheep as seen here.
