Crag features

This small north-facing outcrop can be green, even in summer, and although it attracted some of the area's earliest visitors, it is now strictly for those obsessed with solitude and picturesque esoterica. Its proximity to Back Tor means that it is worth the short stroll across the heather to visit.

Approach notes

Howshaw Tor is situated high above Ladybower Reservoir. The quickest approach is from Foulstone Delf near the Strines Inn (40 mins walk). Park on the bend opposite the gated track and follow it past the shooting lodge and up to the crest of the ridge, then turn right onto the flagged path which leads to Back Tor. At Back Tor head left onto the path and take a right just before the path turns left down the hill.

Note there is no longer any parking at the start of the path just north of Strines. There is space for 4 or 5 cars 1km further north on the right-hand side of the road (Hall Lane, SK 227909).
