Crowden (otherwise Crowden-in-Longdendale) is a landmark hamlet in the High Peak district of Derbyshire, 5.8 miles (9.3 km) miles northeast of Glossop and 5.7 miles (9.2 km) miles southwest of Holme in West Yorkshire, as well as 16.5 miles (26.6 km) from the larger city of Manchester and 19.5 miles (31.4 km) from the town of Barnsley. The hamlet lies within the historic county boundaries of Cheshire.

It lies on the trans-Pennine A628 road connecting Greater Manchester and South Yorkshire. It also lies very close to the Pennine Way long distance footpath (on which it is traditionally the first-night stop after Edale) and includes a youth hostel.[1] The Torside Reservoir is to the south of Crowden. An army rifle range was situated at Crowden in the 1950s and 1960s.

The hamlet was previously served by Crowden railway station on the Woodhead Line between the cities of Manchester and Sheffield, but the station closed on 4 February 1957.
