Chrome and Parkhouse Hills

Chrome and Parkhouse Hills guided walk

Chrome and Parkhouse Hills

Sunday 26 June 2022. 

A guided walk over three of the stunning limestone hills of the White Peak area of the Peak District as part of a small group plus your guide. 

 

From the village of Longnor we take paths and lanes to the tiny hamlet of Hollins Clough.  After crossing the River Dove we walk around Hollins Hill for fine views along the route of the remainder of our walk.  A highlight of the walk will include an ascent of Chrome Hill which is known locally as 'The sleeping dragon' because of its shape.  We will be doing the classic 'Climb the Dragon's Back' walk over Chrome Hill and then on to ascend via a ridge, the sharply pointed Parkhouse Hill which involves some easy scrambling.  We then take a low level path around Hitter Hill to our final hill of the day which is High Wheeldon.  If it is a clear day, there should be amazing views across the White Peak countryside throughout the entire walk.         

 

This is a hilly walk involving about 2000ft/600m of ascent, some of which is steep.  A head for heights is required on Chrome and Parkhouse Hills.  The distance is approx 9.5 miles/15km.    

 

The cost is £38 per person.  Please book and pay below.
