Started brewing in July 2005 located at Unit 10 Howard Town Mill, Mill Street, Glossop initially under the name Howard Town Brewery. The 8BBL plant was supplied by PBC Brewery Installations Ltd. Brewing was suspended due to a serious fire at the premises at the beginning of April 2006 and for a short period brews were commissioned from other breweries such as Hebridean. Brewing re-commenced at their current location on 20th June 2006 and to finish a difficult year, they were voted overall winner at the SIBA National Beer Championships in 2007. The brand name Distant Hills was initially used for "craft" beers but became the main name in May 2022. Brewing ceased in Spring 2023.

Since the 1974 local government reorganisation there has been much controversy over many county boundaries. The links we provide cover all areas possibilities: Ceremonial Counties which are the counties for which a Lord-Lieutenant has been appointed, Historic Counties (and their allied county boroughs) which represent the position before the 1974 re-organisation and Local Authority which represents the third tear District level.
