The boats on this jetty are for hire, they can be seen all over the lady Bower reservoir in the Derbyshire Peak District.
It is quiet unusual to catch the water so calm as the wind comes down the Derwent Valley creating a breeze even on a calm day.

The bridge crosses the main Sheffield to Manchester Road which goes over the lovely Snake Pass. The National Trust administers most of the area.
