Shining Tor & Shutingsloe – 29 Sep

Some six months or so ago we met my brother and his wife for a walk in the Peak and visited Shining Tor. From the summit we looked longingly (some more than others, probably) at Shutingsloe in the middle distance but in the wrong direction on that day. This time we started nearer Shutingsloe and made our way there via Shining Tor. A bright sunny morning let us see the local hills at near their very best while the cool wind ensured we didn’t longer long anywhere.
