Carl Wark & Hathersage Moor


Near Hathersage. Amazing hill fort on the moors very easy to get to too.
Two sides of the fort have a steep slope for defence the 3rd has a massive drystone wall, made from gritstone boulders. The site is approx 2 acres in size.
The rock outcrop at 'Higgar Tor' is definitely worth a scramble round too, this was 'Wet Withens' main alignment the Midsummer Sunrise.
