17 members assembled at the Norfolk Arms,but one minus his boots and he,therefore, hastened back home to fetch them !
The remaining 16 set off in cloud and light drizzle.After Lady Canning Plantation we were soon by the Ox Stones where the 17th member ,now complete with boots , rejoined the party.
A path across the moors then led us to North Burbage where we used the Edge for seating whilst we enjoyed the usual tea break.Continuing to the roadside parking area the majority crossed the 2 streams below the road,while others took the easier option of following the road.
Over the streams by whatever means,we continued to Higger Tor and stopped for lunch under the crags .The drizzle had by then gone and the cloud lifted.We were even welcomed by some sunshine and good views of Carl Wark and beyond!
A descent to the old Pack Horse bridge then followed ,muddy in places,followed by a steady uphill pull to the “Green Sword”.A further and more gentle uphill led to Houndkirk and so back to the Norfolk Arms.
Thanks to all who came and for your company.
