Chrome Hill Walk from Axe Edge Moor Details

This route starts off on the A53 high above Buxton, with the route’s summit somewhat downhill.

Chrome hill is a striking hill, and while it’s not worthy of a spot height (has a contour at 425m) but certainly worthy for a walk. There are only permissive paths to this hill – while the hill itself is an island of access land with no legal way to reach it! One of the vagaries of the open access legislation. There are shorter, more direct routes, while this one makes a half day of it.
