Alphin Pike

Location: Greater Manchester - Near Greenfield/Mossley
Height: 469 metres (1,538 ft)
Summit Type: Grassy/Stony/Heather Covered
Notable Summit Objects: Trig Point, Wind Shelter
Range: Pennines
If you ever travel Trans-Pennine from Leeds or Huddersfield to Manchester, Alphin Pike casts a striking looking hill that towers above the village of Greenfield and Mossley. The hill is actually the edge of high moorland that is the edge of the Peak District National Park, which its summit is just outside of.
The hill gives excellent views south west towards Manchester (the greatest musical city in the world)
as far as Liverpool on a clear day and north west to Saddleworth Moor.
