People used to cross Pack-Horse Bridge on their way from Derwent to Glossop in Derbyshire. In 1945 a dam was built to make Lady Bower Reservoir which flooded the valley where the village of Derwent was. Pack-Horse Bridge was saved from being flooded and was moved stone by stone before the water reached it. It was rebuilt in Slippery Stones, at the head of Howden Reservoir.
This was one of the first works that J G Graves gave to Sheffield.
