Some of my sketches from Over Owler Tor – an imposing, fortress-like gritstone rock formation above the Surprise View near Hathersage in the Derbyshire Peak District.
Saw a lot of colours in the landscape while I was out sketching at Ladybower! I’ve titled this Ladybower and Derwent Edge but I think that’s Whinstone Lee Tor and Lead Hill that I’ve sketched in the background. Feel free to correct me on that.
Short circular walk from Upper Burbage Bridge, down the valley, following the brook to Burbage Plantation under Higger Tor, stopping to do a couple of sketches, then back along Green Drive.

Three hour walk from Ashopton Viaduct to White Tor, taking in the spectacular autumnal views of Ladybower and the upper Derwent Valley, marvelling at the rays of sun breaking through the clouds behind Win Hill, and exploring some of the rugged gritstone tors.
