The River Lathkill is situated in the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire, England. First recorded in 1280, the name “Lathkill” possibly has Scandinavian roots, the old Norse hlada-kill translating as “narrow valley with a barn”.

In normal conditions the river rises from springs, close to the village of Monyash, west of Bakewell, and it flows generally eastward past the village of Over Haddon and through the village of Alport. The river valley, known as Lathkill Dale, is popular with tourists who visit for its natural environment and wildlife.
