The aim of this walk is to visit two more in the series of six poems carved in rock in Yorkshire and one of two Poetry Seats, this one with a box for your poems. It also visits some antiquities (The 12 Apostles Stone Circle, Cowper's Cross) and the highest part of the moor. Although the walk is short it needs clear weather as this is an exposed area. Many tracks have been paved with stone reclaimed from disused mills, bringing it back to its origins. Views on a good day are outstanding.

Walk completed 20/01/19. Fabulous walk with amazing views on well defined paths. Instructions were excellent and easy to follow. Imagine it could get very busy in the summer. The moor is a popular place for walkers.
