Ladybower Reservoir Portal to other worlds
Undoubtedly, it is the best association with this picturesque place. However, the funnel reservoir is not a miracle of nature, it’s human technological interaction with nature. Of course, the impressive sight, like the gateway to hell, has become a popular tourist location. Ladybower is a large Y-shaped reservoir, the lowest of three in the Upper Derwent Valley in Derbyshire, England. Built between 1935 and 1943 by the Derwent Valley Water Board, it took a further two years to fill (1945).
