Win Hill via Shatton

The Peak District National Park was created in 1951, the first national park in the UK. Walking in the Peak District can be quite varied, with the more gentle limestone dales of the White Peak and the higher, gritstone moors of the Dark Peak, meaning there’s something for everyone.

Win Hill via Shatton

Win Hill is often climbed via the steep ascents of Parkin Clough or Twitchell Farm. We prefer this lesser hiked option, which takes in more gradual ascents as you head to the 462m summit.

Hope Station is the starting point for the walk. After a short section of road walking, the route takes you along paths just set above the River Derwent towards Shatton, with surprisingly good views of Win Hill as well as Shatton Edge along the way.

Turning north, you now head up steady paths and tracks to Thornhill, and then onto the south eastern shoulder of Win Hill. It then levels out a little before a swing west and the final, steeper climb to the top where you get fabulous views in all directions.

The descent, which has superb views of the Great Ridge to the west, is via Twitchell Farm and the outskirts of Hope, with a pleasant amble alongside the River Noe back to the station.
