Mon. 07/08/2017 - Walk led by Roman Group (10:00am start) - The aim will be to revisit a stone feature just below Carl Wark and to reassess its position and role in the landscape in the light of recent discoveries at Whirlow and in particular the Roman signal station. We will meet at the pull-offs on the road below Higger Tor where there is space to park several cars. We will then climb Higger Tor to gain a view of the wider landscape. Lines of sight towards Whirlow and Navio Roman Fort need considering. We will then descend past Carl Wark to the feature. There will be an opportunity to visit Carl Wark and for the energetic to walk to Winyards Nick. This is not a long walk but does include a short climb and downward scramble. No need to book, just turn up on the day. Setting off at 10:00 am.
