We started our today’s walk at the free car park at Upper Burbage Bridge. It was a very overcast day as you can see from the pictures; not a single hint of blue in the sky. It stopped raining before we set off but it looked like the rain was going to came back. Check out our previous family walks here.
We turned right out of car park to the road and crossed both of the bridges over Burbage Brook. You can see the route we took here. Although we took the main path and not the track along the Burbage Rocks.
We turn right off the footpath towards the Burbage Brook. You can see the Carl Wark here on the left and Higger tor on the right.
I nearly stepped on this beauty. Isn’t he gorgeous? He was just sitting there letting me to take a picture of him. He even stayed when my boy reached us. I think it was the first time for our son to see a toad in the wild.
We crossed the bridge and headed up towards Carl Wark.
Nice 18th century packhorse bridge.
What an amazing view.
Our boy was fascinated by these tiny flowers. Is the spring finally on its way?
We are approaching the Higger Tor. Higger Tor or Higgar Tor is a dominant landmark of the Dark Peak, in the north of the Peak District National Park. It is a gritstone tor overlooking the Burbage Valley and the iron age hill fort of Carl Wark to the southeast.
Very overcast view from Higger Tor.
It was very foggy but I still enjoyed the mysterious views.
It’s quite rocky on the top of Higger Tor. Our son enjoyed stepping over the rocks.
Nearly back at the car park. At this point it started to rain. Perfect timing!
