Fox House, Longshaw Estate and Carl Wark

I was expecting there to be a lot of lying snow today, but there actually wasn't that much; no more than in Doncaster. In fact the higher ground to the north west didn't seem to have any snow cover at all.

I had intended to just walk a few miles on the Longshaw Estate and get used to my new GPS device, but the conditions underfoot were so good that I went north along the Burbage Valley and climbed Carl Wark, and was surprised how many other people were also out enjoying the Peak District today.


  1. Hi Lee, I've had about four walks in this area so I think I recognise that bridge. I have a picture of Carl Wark and Higger Tor on my picture site at .

  2. hi Lee, that area was one of the very first walks I ever did.

  3. It was one of my first walks too Rob; although I didn't discover the packhorse bridge until a couple of years later.
