Axe Edge Moor is the major moorland, west of Buxton in the Peak District.

The moor is the source of the River Dove, River Manifold, River Dane, River Wye and River Goyt. It boasts England's second highest public house (the Cat and Fiddle Inn). 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 Dove.
