A walk from Pyms Chair to Shining Tor

Flag stones make the walk easier

We took advantage of a lovely sunny day – but still a bit chilly on the tops – to do a walk that we hadn’t done for years.

We parked in the car park at Pyms Chair just a 15 minute drive from Smithys Cottage above Goyt Valley and joined the footpath. It’s a 2 mile walk to the top and 2 miles back. Most the walk is on flag stones which makes it a lot easier especially in west weather.
