Peak through the lens

Gritstone & Sky “Whinstone Lee Tor at the southern end of Derwent Edge offers one of the finest views in the Peak District. Not only does it boast a view along the length of Ladybower Reservoir, flooding Derwent Valley below, but vistas all around to Kinder Scout plateau, Win Hill, Stanage Edge, Bamford Edge and beyond. From here you can continue along Derwent Edge and discover some of the Peak District’s best known and charismatic outcrops such as The Wheelstones, The Salt Cellar and Back Tor. I particularly enjoy visiting Derwent Edge for its feeling of detachment and remoteness. Once the weather closes in, it can feel very much like another world and is in character with some of the great walks in the Dark Peak, taking in Kinder Scout, Bleaklow, Saddleworth, Howden and Midhope Moors.”

Visit Peak District & Derbyshire works closely with a team of professional and amateur Destination Photography Partners to capture the area’s superb and diverse landscapes throughout the seasons.
