    This ridge is very wide in comparison to the famous ridges accross the UK, just beware on a gusty day if heading up the West to East on Back Tor as its a big drop. The views are great on a clear day.

    Wide, sometimes paved paths make it fairly accessible

    Always nice to see where you've come from and know where you've got to get back to:)

    One of the best lower level ridge walks in the UK. Totally safe and views to die for!
