Parkhouse Hill is a small but distinctive hill in the
Peak District National Parkin the English county of Derbyshire. It lies on the north side of the River Dove, close to the border with Staffordshire.
Geologically, the hill is the remains of an
atoll(a ' reef knoll') which existed during the Carboniferousperiod when what is now the Peak District was covered by a tropical sea.
For many years access to Parkhouse Hill was difficult, as there was no right of way to the summit. Access is now possible under the
Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000, as the hill is a designated access area.
