Hollinsclough

Slideshow

Hollinsclough is a small farming hamlet which lies on the upper reaches of the River Dove, on the Staffordshire side of the river. The situation of the village is a spectacular one, overshadowed as it is by the cocks-comb ridge of Chrome Hill.

The village itself is as quiet a place as you will find in the Peak District, with quite a small resident population. There is a Methodist church and rather surprisingly the village boasts a brass band, well known in local circles.

Hollinsclough is a good starting point for walks that explore the upper reaches of the Dove and Manifold valleys between High Edge and Brandside. There are many great views from the hills in the area and relatively few walkers, with the exception of the permissive right of way that now allows walkers to follow the route along the crest of both Chrome Hill and its neighbour Parkhouse Hill.
