Setters Rocks

Setters Rocks is a rather small, easily missed group of rocks to the south of the path from Boulters Tor to White Tor. It sometimes has the name of Set Tor as well. The views to the west are good and you also get a good look at other bigger nearby tors, such as White Tor and Cox Tor. Nearby is Stephen’s Grave, but other than that there isn’t much to keep a walker here. The Merrivale firing range starts at nearby White Tor so be wary of firing times if heading that way.
