Penhill (546m) is a prominent hill in the north Pennines in England. A ridge that commands the southern side of the river valley, its concave shape was formed during the last ice age, when glaciers carved the Ure river valley into a U-shape. The hill is accessible by bridleway, or alternatively by foot over open access land. The summit is home to a trig point, small tarns on the peat moor, and, visible from the valley floor, the beacon, part of the large network built to warn of a Spanish invasion.
