Plover Hill is an area of moorland north of Pen-y-ghent in the Yorkshire Dales, England, and connected to it by an unbroken area of high ground. Whilst the area is now Access Land the main right of way footpaths come directly from the north off Foxup Road and directly from the south from the Pen-y-ghent summit.
