Dam and Overflow, Derwent Reservoir
Dam and Overflow, Derwent Reservoir
Derwent Reservoir is the middle of three reservoirs in the Upper Derwent Valley in the northeast of Derbyshire. It lies just north of the A57 Snake Road between Glossop and Sheffield; approximately 10 miles from each.

The neo-Gothic solid masonry dam was built between 1902 and 1914 when filling of the reservoir began. The dam was officially opened by King George V in 1916.
