Very hot for April (20-25C). Intended to be a nice gentle stroll but turned into a struggle! Painful walking uphill (which was most of it) and had to abandon my original plan to continue past Carl Wark to Over Owler Tor and down to the brook. Not helped by the OS25 map being wrong re the path from Houndkirk Road down to Burbage Brook, lots of undulation, and lots of mud. The path from the footbridge over Burbage Brook up to Carl Wark was a total mess: mud, bog, difficult to find a clean route through, so I decided to call it a day and head back to Fox House on the decent path after the bridge.
