532 Crook Hill

Crook comes from the Old English "croc" meaning land in a bend. Yet though the River Ashop has been swallowed by thirsty Sheffield, the bend in the Ladybower Reservoir remains while, above it, the rocky summit of Crook Hill stands sentinel, giving commanding views of the Derwent Moors.
