Axe Edge

Axe Edge

Old packhorse routes cross the Axe Edge moors in the Peak District, Derbyshire.

Coal was mined from around Axe Edge from about 1600. The mines had been abandoned by the early 20th century, although some coal was extracted in the First World War and again during the General Strike of 1926.

The second-highest pub in England, The Cat & Fiddle, is visible from Axe Edge; it stands 1,690ft (515m) above sea-level.

The moor is the source of the River Dove, River Manifold, River Dane, River Wye and River Goyt. 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. The Axe Edge itself is on the south western edge, near the source of the River Dove.
