Mam Tor

Mam Tor is a 1696 ft hill near Castleton in High Peak. It is one of the most spectacular places in the Peak District, with great views and walks. The hill has a late Bronze Age and early Iron Age univallate hill fort, and two Bronze Age bowl barrows. At the base of the Tor are four show caves: Blue John Cavern, Speedwell Cavern, Peak Cavern, and Treak Cliff Cavern.
