280 Fernilee Reservoir

With floods dominating the news we decided to keep our feet dry by walking along a railway. Fortunately there weren't any trains about, which is hardly surprising as the last engine ran in 1892. But they certainly knew how to keep the track dry when it was built, for there's hardly a puddle, yet alongside is enough water to supply a major city. Guessed where we are? It's the Goyt Valley, one of the most delightful corners of the Peak District.
