Former valve house and gateposts in Ladybower Reservoir
Former valve house and gateposts in Ladybower Reservoir
The gateposts were at the Derwent village school which was drowned with the creation of Ladybower Reservoir in the 1940s. Ruins of the village re-appear when water levels are low, as here in October 2018. On the far side of the reservoir a valve house connected with the water supply from the older Derwent and Howden reservoirs is also emerging.
