The view from Bamford over the Derwent reservoirs ...


Fine outlook, mainly west-facing, so can be cold in the morning and the crag catches the wind. Much more popular since access restrictions were removed a few years ago.

Getting There 

From Bamford village a steep narrow lane runs up the hill (this road goes to Stanage High Neb). About a mile up this road, park on the verge, through a gate and follow easy paths to the crag (15 to 20 minutes).
