Higger Tor - Photo by Andrew Stawarz

Higger Tor is a rugged hilltop dotted with huge boulders and spectacular views in all directions. To the north and east, the view extends across Burbage Moor, and the gritstone edge which hides the skyline of nearby Sheffield. From the southern edge of the tor, the view looks over the Iron Age Carl Wark fortress and the huge boulder known as Mother Cap which sits on the back of Owler Tor. Further in the distance, the Longshaw estate leads to the tree-lined valley of Padley Gorge, while to the West, the scenery extends along Hope Valley, towards Mam Tor at the opposite end, as well as Millstone Edge and Stanage Edge disappearing to the horizon.
