THE PEAK DISTRICT is our nearest National Park; Langsett Reservoir is just 30 minutes
drive from home yet, apart from walking alongside it when I’ve been walking the Cal-Der-Went
Walk, today is the first time I’ve ever visited it. There are new paths through the
pine plantations on the northern shore and if you cross the River Porter (also known
as the Little Don) you can set out across heather moors towards the Derwent Valley.
