2022: Edmundbyers & Derwent Reservoir

About this event

*This is a charitable fundraising event. Please see our website for more details on the fundraising expectations for all participants joining us on The Big Smile!*

This is a fantastic stage of The Big Smile that follows the shoreline of Derwent Reservoir around Pow Hill, and then over meadows to the village of Edmondbyers.

From Edmondbyers, we head towards the moors, climbing to the top of Stoterly Hill, and across the moor towards Muggleswick, passing through the old church yard. Heading back to the reservoir, we pick up the path to Millshield by the dam tower.

The walk takes us through the beautiful Derwent Valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty with lots to see. Keep a look out around the reservoir, as you might spot ospreys fishing for rainbow trout, or perhaps one of Pow Hill’s red squirrels - or even an adder basking in the sun.

A relatively gentle walk around the reservoir, with some uphill sections and moorland walking making it challenging yet thoroughly enjoyable.
