Wall of massive stones at Carl Wark
Wall of massive stones at Carl Wark
A most impressive and intriguing sight. There is very little drop on the other side. These stones and the summit to the right immediately struck me on the first visit as one of the most memorable places to visit I have so far seen in Derbyshire. The setting is great with higher ground around the northern arc and extensive views over descending ground to the south.
