Pulled car off the A628 at SE 15338 00097, the laybay closer to Barnsley is closed off. There are a lot of road works on the road towards Manchester. Up the track that leads past the remains of the Lady Cross but cut off left at SK 15354 99969. Then it was across the moor to Horse Stone Naze. Poor ground, heather, billberry, marsh grass and hump grass mainly, a couple of streams to cross and a few gripes to get over. Eventually reached the Naze tor. It's an easy scramble to the top, about 10 feet. Most difficult part is a step across from one part of the tor to the other part. Return was basicaly the same as the way I had come but not quite the same. Difficult to see where I had been on the way up. Saw a party, on what I guess was Howden Edge. They seemed to be following social distancing. Also saw several hares and heard plenty of curlews.MikeM09/06/2020

From parking on A616. BW to Margery Hill, High Stones, Upper Hey, Outer Edge, Hoar Stones, Horse Stone Naze and back via Outer Edge. Out and back from the edge required careful route choice. Good outcrop for summit.PeterD04/09/2017

Very distinctive top unlike Howden Edge . Saw 4 mountain hares on route today. Descended via Grouse Butts and knee high heather to infant River Derwent which is very different 40 miles down the valley near home. Then a very long walk out back to Fairhomes at the top end of LadybowerMark Sims07/05/2017

5th top of 7 today on a route from Fairholmes visitor centre to Dunford bridge. I Climbed Upper Hey, Howden edge, Margery Hill and Outer Edge before dropping down to pass close to the Crow stones, over Stainery Clough. I got a bit disorientated and missed summit having forgot that I Was actually climbing the summit while I Was at the co. Border having Climbed up and down several peat hags So went out and back again to the awe inspiring top. One of the best summits I've visited for a while amidst real solitude.Dazingdale23/08/2016
Beautiful tor to play with! :) Part of a nice long circular walk with Rob. Langsett Reservoir-Howden Edge-Horse Stone-Crow Stones-Outer Edge-Margery Hill-Langsett reservoir. A few showers.dromeas09/08/2016

Circular walk from Fairholmes, walking along the reservoirs then up onto High Stones, along to Margery Hill and even further along to Outer Edge (done both before) then continuing onto Horse Stones Naze, then followed the river Derwent and the reservoirs back to Fairholmes. 16.4 mile walk, we were thankful it was frozen if not this would be a hideous walk.DanTrig26/02/2016
Part of GMRT assessment, done at night in low cloud.PepandJen18/09/2015
Despite my very dodgy ankle I could not resist going for this my penultimte Sheffield Tump. In earlier days I must have walked past it several times along Howden Edge - The Derwent Watershead. As Mark T, parked at road head and found the path off the main track heading NE up a line of shooting butts along the stream towards the summit. 10km plus some 300m of net ascent was quite a long hobble for me.GordonAdshead28/08/2015
With Jo, from A628/Windle Edge Road: track to Lady Cross, faint path over Round Hill to Howden Edge, then onto Hoar Stones – Howden Edge and Horse Stone Naze. Returned same way to Lady Cross, then bagged South Nab trig. Weather; generally cloudy, warm, good visibility.amblerbob12/08/2015
After visit to Crow Stones, bit of a wild walk, but all good funMypoorblisters07/06/2015
Parked by end of the Windle Edge road, then walk to Lady Cross -> Round Hill -> Hoar Stones -> Horse Stone Naze -> Outer Edge -> Margery Hill -> High Stones, then attempted to find Upper Hey (proved quite hard from above!) before going back the way I came. Back to the car then a quick trip up to Dead Edge End too before coming home (thanks moorsman for the suggested route :) )the_adam28/05/2015
Detour from Derwent watershed walk.Wheelsy30/03/2015
Ciruict of Upper Hey, High Stones, Margery Hill, Outer Edge, Hoar Stones, Horse Stone Naze.PeteF28/09/2014
Solo ascent from Slippery Stones following the wide track up the valley before climbing up the faint path through the heather just before Lands Clough. Then headed NW to attack the low point on the ridge at 520m. Horse Stone Naze not visible from top but comes into sight within a few minutes of walking SE. From Horse Stone Naze followed faint path to Crow Stones then continued on this path along 510m contour coming across site of small air crash (1952). Descended down faint track past Grouse Butts and remains of stone building (ex shooting hut?) crossing footbridge over Broadhead Clough to follow footpath back to track.pwhitaker_196619/05/2014
Parked at road-head st SK 16695 93767 and followed good track up to Slippery (stepping) Stones - they are, and I did! No need either, as there is a bridge several hundred metres upstream. Followed picturesque Upper Derwent Valley by the good track to SK 15102 96883, where a faint path climbs up onto the moor. I followed this past shooting butts to beginning of grassy rake at SK 15449 97420 and so up onto plateau and to fine gritstone tor that is the summit. This is easily climbable on its southern side. To descend, I headed east down into the head of the clough, crossed the stream and followed a sheep track down over the moor back to the Upper Derwent Valley again, and so back by my outward route. A fine hill in remote country. NOTE: the narrow road up to the road-head from Fairholme Visitor Centre is closed to motor traffic on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays. Parking free at roadhead.Man of Kernow109/04/2014
Fairholme car park, Derwent reservoir, Hey Bank, High Stones, Margery Hill, Outer Edge, Howden Edge - Hoar Stones, Horse Stone Naze, descent via grouse butts to Derwent Valley, and along vehicle track all the way back to the car park. Warm and bright or sunny. Boggy on the top of the edge.PaulH01/04/2014
Nice tor to climb at the top. Did a very trick descent back into the Derwent valley.simon and co14/03/2014
Easy parking at end of road to S. Probably best to follow track to 1510 9688 where 4wd tracks to shooting butts - saves a lot of heather bashing. Some heather but not desperate. Tor about 10-12' high. Fairly easy but could be tricky if not dry.destaylor20/09/2013
Start ~ 166939. Followed track up the Derwent valley before taking to the heather. Fine summit rock outcrop.steve hudson28/08/2013
Barely 800m from Hoar Stones and an infinitely better summit - splendid gritstone tor. Fine views of rocky outcrops towards Outer Edge. Returned via a group of prominent boulders on Hoar Stones, crossing a deep peat canyon en-route.Aye Jimmy02/03/2013
From upper Derwent Valley.The Playful Pig29/09/2012
I'm amazed that the rocks ended up like this. Nice view standing on the top.JohnStoneham28/04/2012
Climbed with Kim on a walk on the Howden Moors.alistairpooler30/03/2012
Easy parking alongside the road where it stops at a turning circle. Followed the ROW until it petered out at the trees se of the hill. From here it was a bit of a slog to the summit, but, fortunately, it was soon over.moorsman21/03/2012
From Holmfirth via Dunford BridgeWhithaugh26/02/2012
Long walk from Fairholmes. Approached from Crow Stones, from where there's a good contouring path to Horse Stone Naze.davidpettit8414/01/2012
