At 582 m (1,909 ft) tall, Black hill is located in the Peak District. Once the highest point in the historic county of Cheshire, the peak now lies on the border of West Yorkshire and Derbyshire. Instead, it is now the highest point in the county of West Yorkshire.
The appropriately named hill is peaty and becomes very boggy after heavy rain. There is no vegetation around the summit area and it makes the ground around it very dark. The summit is crossed by the Pennine Way from Crowden. A paved surface, laid by authorities, allows walkers to reach the top with relative ease.
