White Hill

Location: Greater Manchester/West Yorkshire
Height: 466 metres (1,529 ft)
Summit Type: Grassy/Boggy
Notable Summit Objects: Trig Point
Range: Pennines
White Hill is a moorland highpoint that is usually walked as part of the Pennine Way national trail. When walking north on the Pennine Way, White Hill is the first major highpoint after leaving the town of Marsden in West Yorkshire. Its summit is marked by a Trig Point and provides some good views of the surrounding moors. The large transmitter on Windy Hill is located to the immediate north west, with rocky Blackstone Edge beyond. To the far south east, Black Hill (Holme Moss) is visible, with the majority of the Manchester area located to the west.
