In late July and early August the milky way is high in the sky at night in a south direction.
With no moon out, last Friday was a great time to be at Ladybower Reservoir looking down towards the dam and Bamford with the milky way stretching across the frame.
Ladybower isn't a designated dark place, but for me with hills surrounding it I think it's very good for seeing the stars with ease of access. So get yourself there!
