Its highest point (551m) is at grid reference SK035706 This is slightly lower than Shining Tor, (which is some 5km away to the north-west, across the modest dip of incipient Goyt Valley)
The moor is the source of the River Dove, River Manifold, River Dane, River Wye and River Goyt. It boasts England's second highest public house (the Cat and Fiddle Inn). The moor is shared between the counties of Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire, which meet on its south-western flank at the Three Shire's Head on the Dane
