Stanage & Higger Tor (again)

Stanage Sketch 1st August 2013


I must have walked on Burbage moor a thousand times but I don’t think I’ve been on Stanage edge for years, which is pretty terrible considering how often I drive past it and subconsciously take in its outline. It was forecast to be a nice afternoon so I decided to remedy that. (Click on the panorama below to view larger!)

Stanage 01/08/13

I walked along the edge and took in views of most of the walks I did last week, including the Great Ridge and Dennis Knoll which you might be able to make out on my sketch above. I don’t think either the sketch or my iPhone photos do justice to how beautiful it was out there today – there was a breathtaking view from the trig point as the sun came out which I failed to capture, but I’m glad I was there to see it!

Sketch done, I walked back along the edge, down from the trig point and across the road to Higger Tor before heading back through the blossoming heather to Burbage bridge.

    1. Thanks very much! It’s interesting that you feel drawn beyond the page. When I looked at it after I’d finished, my immediate thought was that I should probably work on thinking about my composition before I get stuck into painting next time ;)
