    The High Tor is a sheer rock face, four hundred foot high, found near the village of Matlock in Derbyshire. It was a popular tourist attraction in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Glover exhibited nine views taken in and around Matlock at the Society of Painters in Water-colours in 1814 and 1815. This watercolour commanded the very high price of £210 in 1814.
