Low water at the Derwent reservoir

With the Derwent dam in the far distance the water level got lower the further up the valley I walked.

A lot of the stones in the foreground are dam spoil left nearly a hundred years ago, some of it though is dressed stone and possibly from farmhouses or outbuildings that once occupied this valley before it was flooded.
