Fell Running: Parkhouse & Chrome Hill

Pictures of a hilly fell run in the White Peak of Derbyshire

The steep climbs and narrow ridges of Parkhouse and Chrome Hills give an almost Alpine feel to this beautiful run. Parkhouse and Chrome Hills lie just north of the village of Longnor, close to the Derbyshire / Staffordshire border. Although their highest point is only 425 metres, their distinctive “Dragon’s Back” profiles and narrow ridgelines with steep slopes give a much more mountainous feel. Their summits offer fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. They are reef knolls, formed when the Peak District lay under a warm tropical sea. https://picasaweb.google.com/s/c/bin/slideshow.swf Running Blogs
