Harder than I had anticipated due to pretty severe weather. Summit nothing too special but crossing those streams was pretty fun.ironwolf09/08/2019
Parking near mast, over Holme Moss, past trig to probable real top. Difficult to see a difference.iangalbraith26/07/2019
12.2 mile circular from Woodhead reservoir dam, walked the long way around Torside reservoir because the shorter path is closed and up onto Black Hill via the Pennine Way (4th time bagged), quite busy on way up because there was a fell race going on, from Black Hill summit we descended over White Low (1st time bagged) and via Hey Edge trig back down to the dam. High cloud but with breeze could see Dales as well as Wales from summit of Black Hill.DanTrig21/07/2019

From layby on A635. Hour and half round trip in cold but dry weather. Easy walking on Pennine way.Longwojo30/10/2018
Day trip from home in Penrith. Lots of hard roadside parking where Pennine Way crossed the A635, by the burger van (which sadly had gone by the time we finished our walk!) Along Pennine Way all way to top, mostly on large stone slabs. No bogs to cross but a couple of becks that may need detour in wet weather. On to Black Chew Head then return same way to car.Hillsidenick13/09/2018
Parked at Holme. Circled anti clockwise past Digley Reservoir to the Pennine Way. Reached trig pint and met someone who was on their second day of the Pennine Way. Made way to Holme Moss Transmitting Station but couldn't see anything due to low cloud and rain. Continued along edge past Ramsden Clough and descended to Yateholm Reservoir. Final ascent through the woods back into Holme. Total walk 13 1/2 miles and took 6 1/4 hours. Rained pretty much all day but finished off with a pot of tea at the pub which was very welcome.TractorBoy08/09/2018

Parked on car park on A635 NW of Black Hill, very hard to find the footpath after climbing the style, then found large wooden post to follow, then lost path, found path, lost and found again. Nice deserted walk with only 2 people at trig point, easy to find high point then back, again lost path near car park.Walkingthedog21/06/2018

From Crowden via Black Chew Head. Very hot day - fortunately I was back down by 11 to miss the worst of the heat.RedAndy5407/05/2018
Second ascent of Black Hill, this time from the north. Parked beside A635 at SE 051 062, walked south on original route of Pennine Way to Black Hill. Then followed current route north, crossed A635, passed Wessenden reservoirs, then west across Black Moss to pick up the original PW route back to the car. Wet underfoot after the snowmelt, dry cloudy-bright day. First outing for new boots. With Dave.Skip11/03/2018

From near the mast at top of pass. Was dreading the thought of a waist deep forray through the peat but actually got there and back with no issues at all. I can imagine in poor visibility it could be a tad tricky but theres path all the way to the trig at least. Not the most inspiring place though there was a few other souls out and about.stig_nest03/09/2017

Climbed alone along Pennine Way from Crowden car park. Cold but mostly sunny winters day. Muddy/rocky path over Laddow Rocks to Little Clough. Thereafter delightfully easy on the paving slabs. Bagged trig point (the county high point of the real Cheshire) but not the possibly higher peat hags nearby in Yorkshire! Returned same route ... Saw a guy climbing with his son to camp on the tops at 4pm (very brave!). Time 4.5 hours.jamessteel10018/02/2016
4th hill of 5 on a testing today of rain/sleet and strong winds. Starting from Mossley station, to reservoir, Hoarstone edge, Featherbed moss, Black Chew head across to the Pennine way (veering off where Cloughs have submerged the path. Bless those slabs! On approach to Trig climbed grassy mounds as realised that summit had moved. Also touched trig and then took bearing to White Low.Dazingdale08/02/2016

Crowden -> Featherbed Moss -> Chew Reservoir -> Hoarstone Edge -> Black Chew Head -> Black Hill -> White Low. Not recommended in anything but dry weather, very boggy in places once off the paved path! From Featherbed moss I'm certain that heading north to the track by the reservoir rather than trying to cross over Windgate Edge saved a bit of time/discomfort, also allows you to walk along the edge itself which is far more interesting :)the_adam18/07/2015

From Crowden car park in an anti-clockwise direction. Snow from about 450m so a bit of a trudge in mist. Pennine way down was easier to follow and going to Black Chew Head was easy enough. Slow day as difficult to get any rythm with ice on the paths where there was no snow.SS13/12/2014

County top No.52. By car from holiday flat in Buxton to Crowden, then out and back walk to Black Hill along the Pennine Way. Took the wrong turn at Laddow Rocks (day dreaming) and didn't realise it until Black Chew Reservoir came into view!! Distance 10.1 miles; climb 2270 feet; time 5:55.

Crowden>Featherbed Moss>Black Chew Head>Black Hill>White Low>Crowden. One of the hardest walks for the distance ever walked. Springy, boggy, lots of potential to twist ankles, lying snow in groughs so no way of knowing how deep they were and caught out a few times. I'm glad I have ticked this foursome off but I'm not sure I would return, the going is just so unpleasant. I hope the man we met on the top managed to get back OK, he didn't seem to know where he was going. Enjoyed the food, beers and whisky in Sheffield afterwards though.RichieRambler16/02/2013

with son Jamie, Toby and his girlfriend Florie and dog Ben-Ji. Warm blue skies and very few wispy clouds. Followed stake-marked peaty f/p from WNW,just like Pergrinus Rob, only to discover there's a paved path from the Meltham direction and despite it being pretty dry underfoot there was still a place where we unavoidably got wet feet. Gave up after 10 mins previous evening at 9 pm after realising terrain and distance would make it a foolish epic without headtorches, but watched a glorious red ball sunset. Had logged this marilyn summit as visited before in March or April 1972 on 'Four Inns venture scout walk as this was our route though had no full memory of whether we actually passed by the trig pillar.

As part of superb thru-walk also taking in Hoarstone Edge and Black Chew Head. Bogs dry as a bone when we were there. Summit strangely attractive in an alien moonscape kind of way.wheresthepath29/04/2007
Started at the top of the A635 and followed an extremely muddy/peaty track up to the summit ridge and then along to the summit - the Pennine way was paved and looked nice. Same way down - through peat hags.ChinnockC18/02/2007

Used public transport so started walk from Tintwistle, to Crowden by old railway route to Crowden, then good path by Crowden Little Brook, quiitegood going over bog and peat to find the driest way. Most of the peat had gone in a fire and the way back, via Laddow Rocks, was dry. Finished from Crowden by taking a moorland path with good views over Lad's Leap then via Arnfield. 17.5 miles in all. This is no more than an historic account, conditions change so quickly on these Pennine moors and there are now paved paths on some Black Hill routes. A fine day, a few light showers in the afternoonpwheeler15/04/1993

24 miles Crowdon to Mankinholes YH with Mark on day 2 of PW. Suprisingly not bad going underfoot up via Laddow Rocks doing 5 miles in 2 hours -pleasing progress, however endless boggy horrors awaited beyond. Met a guy on his own covered in peat who had just dug himself out ! We came to enjoy the messy fun of it all I guess.Chris Pearson15/09/1984
Marsden YH to Edale YH solo in 10 hrs hot- shorts on Balck Hill - getting water a problem. Met lots of Pennine Way walkers going the other way, one carrying a guitar.Chris Pearson02/08/1982

Bog Dodgers Way 20 mile circular challenge walk solo from/ to Marsden YH. From NW following / losing PW line through bogs (pre-flagstones), some white posts - went in up to knees. From trig, an island of rock in bog - for some reason (maybe to escape the bogs asap) rather than heading N back towards Marsden by shortest way I did a huge loop by making a bee-line SE for Holme Moss transmitter which looked deceptively close and main road down to Holme and cut back up to PW for endless miles down alongside reservoirs. Back to YH at 7.45 pm -relief...(10h15 mins out) Then cycled 13 miles over Holme Moss (later famous for Tour de France in Yorkshire) to Crowdon YH -arrived in dark 10.30 to a warm welcome from warden.Chris Pearson25/06/1981
