The summit of Chrome Hill
Like it's smaller neighbour Parkhouse Hill, Chrome Hill is a ancient limestone reef knoll, formed in the Carboniferous period. It's located just south of Buxton in the Peak District, near to the village of Hollinsclough. Chrome Hill was declared open access land under the provisions of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000.

Chrome Hill contains good exposures of Gigantoproductus fossils; it is part of a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest along with Parkhouse Hill.
