If you are working your way up the LDWA Dewey Register you will come across several Deweys around Buxton. The terrain is often heather bashing or soggy cotton grass clumps. However, there are easy routes
Shutlingsloe, Shining Tor and Cats Tor are on good paths marked on the OS map.
Black Edge and Combs Head are on a good unmarked path which follows the intake wall.
Whetstone Ridge is just off the bridleway from the Cat and Fiddle Inn (closed!) to Dane Bower. There is a faint quadbike track from SK 000 708 to the top.
Oliver Hill is just off the Flash to Oxenstitch path. A farm track goes to the top from SK 024 677.
Axe Edge is on a nice unmarked path from Axe Edge End north to which carries on north to the Dane Valley Way.
There are useful bus services from Buxton to Flash, Cat and Fiddle. All except Shutlingsloe could be visited on a walk from Chapel en le Frith station to Buxton station.
