Sarah Parkin's photo of Pic Tors

This photo of the ‘Pic or Peak Tor’ at Rowsley, was taken by Mercury reader Sarah Parkin, of Matlock.

It features a view of Riber Castle, if you look closely.

The view seems to say everything about the Tor that we expect but it is not often seen from this angle as it was taken from a quiet track opposite, full of bird song- pheasants and birds of prey.

“Since painting it, I have been told of the many names it is given by locals- Bubble Mountain, Gill’s Mountain...”
