Parkhouse Hill

nr Longnor, Derbyshire

Quick Guide
See below grid for details

A small distinctive hill close to the Derbyshire-Staffordshire border, where limestone dominates and the region known as White Peaks prevails. There is an unclassified road beneath the hill to Stannery, this may not be suitable for parking, so you may need to park up in Longnor and walk back.

At the base of the hill follow the contour to the right and the hill slowly gaining height, turn left up the ridge and onto the summit. There are a number of paths from the summit that allow you to descend, but be careful some of them can be slippery, the easier routs are to the NW.

There are a number of rock formations on the top of the hill and the views are stunning across the Peak District countryside.

This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far more information.

Please let us know any other information that we can add to the Further information and Planning Grids or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you quote the CIN Page Ref at the bottom of the Planning Grid above. To print the planning grid select it then right click and print the selected area.

Please submit information on locations you discover so that this system continues to grow.
