Black Hill is most northerly of the three great gritstone and peat plateaux which dominate the Dark Peak region. Smaller in area and lower than either Kinder or Bleaklow (it nowhere attains a height of 600m), it nonetheless is a remote and bleak place to be in bad weather, and it has peak bogs which are a match for those on either of its larger neighbours to the south. However, Black Hill has few of the eroded rocks which are such a feature of Kinder and Bleaklow.
