Carl Wark

This is an ancient fortress whose primitive fortifications can still be seen, merging with the moorland and bracken. It is a prominent outcrop of gritstone in the vally threaded by Burbage Brook, hemmed in on the east by long line of Burbage Roacks, on the northwest by the loftier Higger tor, and to the southwest by the sloping moor that terminates abruptly at Millstone Edge. Sloping up from west to east, the crest ends in a conspicuous prow. Carl Walk can be reached by many tracks through the bracken, and most directly from the bridge over Burbage Brook.
