Burbage Moor – Ox Stones
Close up of the flowering heather on Burbage Moor looking towards the distinctive gritstone formations known as the Ox Stones. Peak District National Park.
Sunset at the Ox stones, a group of distinctive gritstone formations on Burbage Moor. I’ve never experienced midges quite like this evening, there were literally thousands pelting the side of my hood, despite being covered head to toe in waterproofs and wearing about a gallon of insect repellent! At times I couldn’t even see as there was such a big swarm buzzing around me!
Burbage Moor – About the Burbage Valley:
Burbage Edge lies on the eastern side of the Peak District National Park and is in fact just eight miles west of the centre of Sheffield making it an extremely popular walking and climbing hotspot. The Burbage Valley features two famous gritstone outcrops Higger Tor and Carl Wark, the latter of which is topped with the remains of what is thought to be a Bronze or Iron Age hill fort.
