WIN HILL with an elevation of 462m it's the most prominent of hills in the dark peak with its distinctive pimple like summit. It's shape is said to be mimicked buy the tallest stone on Hordron edge stone circle.
Surrounded by water with the river Derwent, river Noe and Ladybower reservoir surround its base like a moat. The ascent from the Yorkshire bridge up Parkin Clough is a steep climb of 300m in 3/4 of a mile. There are gentler route up from Hope if that seems a bit intense.
The hills counter part, Lose hill lies on the opposite side of the river Noe. It's said a 7th Century battle. Between Edwin of Northumberland and Cynegils of Wessex. Edwins forces occupied Win hill while Cynegils occupied Lose hill. As Cynegils forces advanced up Win hill, Edwins forces retreated behind a stone wall that they had erected. They then proceed to push boulders off the wall downhill, crushing the Wessex soldiers and gaining victory of the battle and winning the hill. And that's where the name came from #winhill #yorkshirebridge#bamford#localhistory

Ladybower is one of my favourite places to visit in the peaks, so many places to explore.
Dovedale is a charming stretch of valley along
the River Dove as it runs between the picturesque village
of Milldale and Thorpe, in the magnificent White Peak area of the Peak District.
It is best known for the well-known river stepping stones, and also famous for its fantastic array of curious rock formations - from the stony archway of Reynard's Cave to the fossil-strewn heights of Lover's leap.
This is beautiful Milldale ......tranquil, clustered, riverside village of square stone cottages, surrounded by steeply wooded hills near Alstonefield and Dovedale.
