Another classic Peak Dictrict stroll. I parked in the Surprise View car park. I went through a gate saying Bull in field but I saw no bull. By this point everyone in the UK is far too scared of covid-19 to be bothered by a silly old bull anyway. A pleasant climb through birch wood brought me up and amongthe rock sculpture park that is the top of Owler Tor. Then on to the top of Higger Tor, down to the bridge, back round Higger Tor over Carl Wark and home. The paths down from Carl Wark all lead down to the Toad's Mouth so to get to Surprise View without a boring road walk I had to criss some pathless bog. But by this point everyone in the UK is far too scared of covid-19 to be bothered by a bit of pathless bog.
I parked in Hope by the church and headed up Edale Road a short way to where a little road branches off right signposted to Twitchill Farm. A track goes under the bridge and up to the farm whereit turns into a path that climbs diagonally up right to and a bit to the west of the summit which is soon reached. From here I headed west then northwest along the lovely ridge that stretches out towards Hope Cross. In os eplaces the path is poretty ruined by people on offroad vehicles. Otherwise the walking here is lovely. I followed the ridge for further than I meant to and ended up descending rather steeply to Upper Fulwood Farm then down its track to Bagshaw Bridge and then the windy road back into Hope and home.
