2818 Win Hill

Win Hill lies north-west of Bamford and overlooks Ladybower Reservoir to its north. At 462 metres high, it’s far from the highest hill in the area, but is still a very popular destination for walkers due to its rocky summit (named Winhill Pike), heather moorland, a variety of access routes, fantastic views, and woodland surroundings. It certainly sets it apart from the higher hills that surround it.

It can be accessed using a variety of routes and from most directions. Popular options include an ascent from Hope via Twitchill Farm, from Yorkshire Bridge via a very steep climb up Parkin Clough, or from Kinder Scout along the ridge that connects the two, and which is home to the Roman Road and Hope Cross.

Win Hill is commonly used as a starting point for both the Edale Skyline, and the Derwent Watershed walks.
