A view back up the Burbage Valley to Burbage Rocks.


And a view down the valley past Carl Wark.

Carl Wark is the first peak we went up to which has the remains of an Iron Age Hillfort on top and then Higger Tor was visited (the peak in the centre).

Crossing Burbage Brook.

One of the walls that made up the northern edge of the Iron Age Hillfort.
