Black Hill – Cheshire

Black Hill is the county top of Cheshire. Black Hill is a hill in the Peak District, on the border of Cheshire and the West Riding of Yorkshire. It rises up to the north of the Heyden Moor in the westernmost part of Cheshire to climb. The summit is on the county boundary. Until recently, the area surrounding the summit itself had virtually no vegetation and was very dark, giving the hill an appropriate name, but recent work by the Peak District National Park Authority has eliminated much of the exposed peat.  They have also paved the path to the top on the track of the Pennine Way.
