HIGH TOR - MATLOCK
To finish off yet another series of images from my scanner a photograph I took whilst enjoying a walk in Matlock, Derbyshire, again at a time I cannot pin down. High Tor is a lofty limestone crag which towers over Matlock Bath which used to be privately owned but now belongs to the local authority. The view from the summit area of the tor is very impressive, all the more so because the cliff edge is totally unfenced and even those with a head for heights are likely to find the drop unnerving. There is an excellent view of Matlock Bath and the Heights of Abraham on the opposite hill. For those with strong nerves a narrow walkway called 'Giddy Ledge' winds around a section of the cliff and even though this is not the highest buttress of the tor, the situation is impressive.
This is the last of my slide scans at the moment, more to come later in the year when I have the time to do the scanning.
