Throughout the gritstone region of the Dark Peak there are many tors and these outcrops of rock can be seen dotted along the high points of the national park. Although these tors are not as famous or prevalent as those in Dartmoor, the Peak District is a significant area for tors on a world stage. This book features walks to these summits from accessible points - due to the nature of the hills in the area they are a little challenging but by no means strenuous. There are 20 walks to tors including Mam Tor, Higger Tor, Shining Tor, Back Tor and others., together with information about nearby places to visit and explanation on how the tors were formed.
