  View of the stepping stones, Dovedale, Ashbourne, Derbyshire Peak District   Dovedale, Ashbourne.

These are the famous, and popular, stepping stones in Dovedale. They can be covered by the river in times of flood but in normal conditions, as seen here, the worst that can happen to you if you miss your footing is that your feet may get seriously wet.
