SE0704 : Black Hill and Soldiers' Lump

4 km from Holme, Kirklees, Great Britain

Black Hill and Soldiers' Lump
Black Hill and Soldiers' Lump
Black Hill lies on the border between Kirklees borough and Derbyshire, reaching 582 metres above sea level.

The top is peaty and thus very boggy after rain. The area surrounding the summit itself has virtually no vegetation and is very dark, giving the hill its name. However, Black Hill is crossed by the Pennine Way whose paved surface allows walkers to reach the top dry-shod even in the wettest of weather.

The trig point and highest point on Black Hill is on a small elevated mound, called Soldiers' Lump.
