Shapley Tor

Shapley Tor to be fair is probably one of those tors that you go to in order to tick a box on a list and because it is easy to get to, being not far from the Two Moors Way and Hookney Tor. There is not much in the way of rock stacks on Shapley Tor, just a few pieces of granite fighting it out for who is the highest!! It does however have some fantastic views eastwards towards King Tor and beyond. Following the Two Moors Way is probably the easiest way to get to this tor. Shapley Tor has no military firing ranges near it.
