Whittenknowles Rocks

A bit of a mouthful for a scattering of clitter and rocks on a hill to the north of Eastern Tor on the southern moor. This area of clitter is mixed in with a settlement, with clear walls passing through outcrops. Its a very simple walk to this outcrop being a couple hundred metres from the Gutter Tor scout hut and the parking there. There are no military firing ranges near here.
