Axe Edge Moor
Axe Edge Moor is the major moorland south-west of Buxton in the Peak District, spread over the borders of Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire. It is mainly gritstone (Namurian shale and sandstone). Its highest point (1,808 ft) is at SK035706, which is just is slightly lower than Shining Tor (three miles to the north-west, across the modest dip of the incipient Goyt Valley).
The moor is the source of three noteworthy rivers:
On the moor is England's second-highest public house (the Cat and Fiddle Inn).
The Axe Edge itself is on the south-eastern edge, near the source of the Dove.
