Lockerbrook, Alport Castles, Derwent Reserviors

Here are some pictures from the walk I under took last Saturday. This walk is a pleasant and easy walk with plenty of variety packed in to it's eleven and a half miles. It's based around the Lockerbrook, Alport Castles and the Derwent reserviors, if anyone would like more detail just ask and I will do all I can to help you.

The only real climb of the day from Fairholmes car park to Lockerbrook.
Time for a rest and a look back through the trees.

A small waterfall and watering hole near Lockerbrook Farm.

Heading over Rowlee Pasture things became quite wintery.

Could this be 'Sasquatch'?

A little shelter should the weather turn bad.
Dropping down through the trees in to the valley.

A woodland stream.

The ice covered Howden Reservior.

An ice circle
Foot bridge at Slippery Stones, always a good place to take a break.
The long road home.
Water flowing over the Derwent Dam.
The car park is just a few hundread yards from here.

That looks like it was a wonderful walk. Oddly, with the strangely mild weather we've been having (el nino and all that) it looks more wintery there than it does here . . . and more sasquatches afoot over there as well!
