Hollin Hill (Oxenhope Moor)

Location: Near Oxenhope - West Yorkshire
Height: 451 metres (1,480)
Summit Type: Grassy/Flat/Peat Boggy
Notable Summit Objects: Trig Point, Cairn
Range: Pennines
Hollin Hill, the highest point of wind swept Oxenhope Moor, is a distinctive highpoint due to the large wind farm near the summit. The moor is basically a huge peat bog, and the area near the summit has been heavily quarried at some point. The summit gives some fine views north towards Oxenhope and along the Worth Valley towards Bronte Country, and south west to Warley Moor Reservoir and the moors beyond. Hollin Hill is one of those high points that has all the feel of being quite remote, when you're never far from civilisation.
