Rishworth Moor is a large area of wind swept moorland to the south west of the village of Rishworth. The moor is viewed when heading along the M62 looming above the Turnpike Inn and Booth Wood Reservoir, and makes for a prominent highpoint as you head through this area of the Pennines. The summit - Dog Hill is marked by a Trig Point and gives some fine views of the surrounding wild moors. Looking south across the M62 is the bulk of Moss Moor and White Hill and the Windy Hill transmitter mast, to the north is the highpoint of Manshead End and on towards Cragg Vale and Blake Moor, and looking west is Great Withins Reservoir and Blackstone Edge.
