Shining Tor from Pym Chair

Distance: 6.5km; Ascent:180m; Initially sunny, but then cold & windy; with Lynsey & Isabel

It was bright and sunny in Stockport when we woke up this morning so we decided to go for a morning family stroll in the Peak District.  We set off from Pym Chair at around 10:30am with Isabel on my back in her rucksack carrier.  After just under a kilometre we reached the summit of Cats Tor (Dewey), from where there were excellent views south towards Shutlingsloe.

We pressed on along the good path as the sky clouded over, although it did remain dry but there was a cold wind.  We reached the summit of Shining Tor (Marilyn, Dewey), and nearby trig point, at around 11:30am, where we had a bit of break before retracing our steps back to the car, which we arrived at around 12:30pm.

    1. Sounds good - I'll send you an email.

      I had planned to be backpacking in the northern highlands this coming weekend, but that may not be happening now so I might go to the Lakes instead. It's all a bit up in the air at the moment...

  2. Ahhhhh, so that's what it looks like!

    Did this ridge as part of a longer day out in early December a few years back. We had full-on clag and freezing rain, so the views were .... limited.

    I'm planning on doing this again soon as part of my ongoing "round Derbyshire" walks.

    1. I know what you mean! Whilst I think I've always had a view from the top of Shining Tor whenever I've been up it, there are plenty of other hills that I've ascended in the mist and then discovered excellent views on return visits.

      I hope the weather is kinder to you when you return to Shining Tor!

  3. Shining by name, shining by nature I shouldn't wonder!
