A feature of the upper valley of the River Dove is the row of sharp-edged limestone hills which line the north side of the river almost like teeth. These hills, notably Chrome Hill and Parkhouse Hill, are the remains of coral reefs which once made up the edge of the shallow lagoon in which the limestone rocks were laid down on the early Carboniferous era, 340 million years ago. They are among the most spectacular sights of the area.

This short walk starts from the charming little hamlet of Hollinsclough on the gritstone of the Staffordshire side of the river and crosses to the Derbyshire side to make a traverse of the spectacular ridge of Chrome Hill before returning. There are many possible walks starting from Hollinsclough but this, the shortest, is probably the most exciting.

Car sharing available.

Kit list: hat, gloves, warm clothes, waterproof jacket and trousers, walking trousers walking boots as may be slippy tea flask.

Regular walking can...

  • fill you with energy and confidence
  • help you beat stress
  • make your heart fitter and strengthen your bones
  • help you keep your weight down
