Lovely Autumn walk Earl Sterndale- Parkhouse Hill- Chrome Hill-Hollinsclough-East Sterndale. These 2 hills are much harder to get up than their height would suggest. Steep, slippery and a bit of scrambling involved. Fantastic hills, though.Lazylizzie15/10/2016
Narrow limestone ridge, quite a joy to climb, and with spectacular view. Natural arch on ridge line north of summit, but missed cave on north west slopes.Denise 04/07/2016

clear, cool, calm. Low cloud in some of the valleys from pub on A53 near Oliver Hill done with Parkhouse hilljoseph mitchell10/01/2013
A walk from Longnor including Chrome Hill and on the return Parkhouse hill. They really are so beautiful both of these hills and this one is aptly named the 'Dragon's back'. Pretty steep climb up but many opportunities for great photos. I followed the Pathfinder guidebook for the White peak on this walk.Dazingdale30/12/2012
