Can you name these watery landmarks within two of the UKs beautiful national parks?

Did you know that the Peak District doesn’t actually have any peaks? The highest point in the Peak District is Kinder Scout which stands at 636 metres above sea level. Ironically the Lake District has a lot more peaks than the Peak District with places like Scafell Pike and Helvellyn standing just shy of 1km above sea level.

One feature that both national parks have in common is water. There are around 40 reservoirs in and around the Peak District and around 30 lakes and tarns in the Lake District. They attract millions of visitors to both regions for many reasons; boating, photography and in some cases, fishing.

But how well do you know the Lake District and the Peak District? Can you tell the difference between a lake and a reservoir?

We’ve compiled this fiendishly difficult quiz for you to test your knowledge. If you get any wrong then don’t worry, it’s a perfect excuse to visit these spots in the future so you can see them for yourself.

We would love to see your photos of lakes and reservoirs. Head over to the Lancashire Life reader photo gallery for photos of the Lake District or the Derbyshire Life reader photo gallery for photos of the Peak District.
