Ashford in the Water
Sheepwash Bridge, Ashford in the Water
The medieval Sheepwash Bridge spans the River Wye at Ashford in the Water, north of Bakewell in Derbyshire. The triangular sheep pound adjacent to the bridge held the sheep before they were washed in the river. This village is probably one of the most frequently photographed beauty spots in Derbyshire.
