Sharp Haw is a hill on the southern edge of the Yorkshire Dales, located just within the National Park. Being the last outpost of the hills before the broad Aire valley, and with a sharp summit from many angles, it is prominent and easily recognisable from much of the area to the south. The hill has an elevation of 357 metres (1,171 ft).
The pastures up Sharp Haw are gone to sheep and beef cows, as well as ground nesting birds.
The word Haw comes from the Old English hawian, and means view.
