Chrome Hill is a 425-metre limestone knoll in the Upper Dove valley. Since discovering Gigantoproductus fossils in the vicinity, the area has since been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Chrome Hill and Parkhouse Hill are two summits of the Peak District that face each other alongside the River Dove. Due to their rolling spine-like quality, they have been given the nickname Dragon’s Back. This is a relatively quiet area of the peaks and is a perfect spot for watching sunset or sunrise. During midsummer, there’s a fantastic celestial event that occurs. The sun sets on one side of Chrome Hill, then reappears again on the far side before at last setting on the horizon. This gives the viewer the illusion of experiencing two sunsets simultaneously! There’s roadside parking in the village of Earl Sterndale. One can take a short amble up to the hills and admire them from the bottom, or climb to the summit of both hills, energy permitting. Image Credits: Drew Collins on Unsplash
