Solomon's Temple

A well timed shot as it was very busy up here with plenty
of people heading up and down the tower.

Combs Moss

There was a fine view across Buxton to Combs Moss.

Grin Plantation

Our route took down through Grin Plantation which is showing few signs of spring.

We passed through Fern House, a local stables.

As we head down to the road our route along the track is easy to spot.

Solomon's Temple

As we climbed the track Solomon's Temple came back into view.

Solomon's Temple

We rarely lost sight of it for the rest of the walk.

The track across the moor was hard to miss.
