Matlock - Oker Hill
Oker Hill, nr Matlock, Derbys. Fri 28 Dec 2018
One of the easier stretches of mud - most of time
I was too busy trying to keep upright to take pictures
The view roughly to the east as we climbed to the top
and roughly to the southwest towards Oker village.
I wondered if these might have been Roman walkways. Or perhaps from
the lead mining or minor landslips
Will Shore's sycamore (or possibly a replacement)
The path led on north-west to another summit and the trig point, but
we didn't go on
A few yards down the hill we could see Riber Castle on the hilltop
south of Matlock
Ashton Farm and a distant view of the Derwent
