“The High Meggers: the term used by some of the pioneers for the worlds, most of them still little more than legend, more than a million steps from Earth.”
"The High Meggers" is the term used for the Earths that are located more than a million steps from Datum Earth. It was used by the early pioneers of the Long Earth.
They are the opposite of the Low Earths.
In Pratchett's 1986 short story, the term is spelled as "the high meggas".
