A spectacular Peak District location
Ladybower Reservoir is the largest of three dams in the Upper Derwent Valley, famed for being the location of the Dambuster training runs.
The Upper Derwent Valley is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, with fabulous walks and cycle trails straight from the door of the Yorkshire Bridge Inn. Cycles can be hired locally and stored in our covered storage area. Fly fishing is also available on Ladybower Reservoir, and there are golf and horse-riding facilities nearby too. The iconic Stanage Edge, a mecca for rock-climbing enthusiasts, is only a short drive away.
At about this time my Grandfather (William Motley) was working for his father in law (John Henry Sweet) who owned the greengrocery shop at Birchinlee and would have been driving a similar horse and cart. Many of his customers in fact knew him as 'Dick', though this was the horses name, because as the horse coped with the hills he would be encouraged with 'Come on Dick'. My maternal Grandmother (Dolly Gibbs) worked at the YBI for the Purves family for some years around 1949 before becoming cook at the Mill.
So interesting to see old YBI x
