About Black Hill

Black Hill is a fairly featureless grassy hill to the west of Malham Tarn which has just enough prominence to qualify for the list of Fours. The top of the hill is unmarked by cairn or trig point. The highest point seems to be a very slight but obvious grassy mound on the western side of the top. Black Hill has few of the eroded rocks which are such a feature of Kinder and Bleaklow.



Attractions near Black Hill

Holme Moss1.84km from Black Hill

Holme Moss is an iconic British hill climb used in many big races, such as the Tour of Britain and the now defunct Leeds Classic. It is also used in quite a few cyclo sportives, such as the Tour of the Peak, and also hill climbs.

Wessenden Valley6.12km from Black Hill

The Wessenden Valley is a moorland valley nestled amidst the Dark Peak, immediately south of the large village of Marsden in the English county of West Yorkshire. The valley was formed by retreating glaciers at the end of the last ice age and continues to be cut by the Wessenden Brook, a tributary of the River Colne.  The valley is occupied by four reservoirs, namely Wessenden Head, Wessenden, Blakeley, and Butterley, the largest.

Dovestone Reservoir6.17km from Black Hill

Dovestone Reservoir lies at the convergence of the valleys of the Greenfield and Chew Brooks above the village of Greenfield, on Saddleworth Moor in Greater Manchester, England. The reservoir is on the western edge of the Peak District National Park. It supplies drinking water to the surrounding area and is a tourist attraction, providing several walks amongst picturesque landscapes.

Torside Reservoir6.53km from Black Hill

Torside Reservoir is the largest man-made lake in Longdendale in north Derbyshire. It was constructed by John Frederick Bateman between April 1849 and July 1864 as part of the Longdendale chain to supply water from the River Etherow to the urban areas of Greater Manchester.

Marsden Moor is a stunning, windswept upland moor that is home to a variety of birds and wildlife. It is looked after by the National Trust. The estate covers 2,429 ha (5,685 acres) of unenclosed common moorland and almost surrounds Marsden.

Standedge Tunnel is the longest, highest and deepest canal tunnel in Britain! Situated midway along the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, the tunnel takes the canal under the high Pennine spine of Northern England between Marsden in the Colne Valley and Diggle in Saddleworth. A highlight of a visit to Tunnel End is a boat ride into the tunnel. The rides start from Tunnel End Cottages at the tunnel mouth and go about 500 metres into the tunnel.
