    Savour the dramatic views from Mam Tor over the Peak District. As you ascend the steps keep an eye out for the special stones in the steps, which hint at the iron age settlers who once lived on this hill.

    As you start to climb the steps you can see, on the other side of the road, the thin and unstable beds of shale and sandstone of which Mam Tor is made. Take care! Cliffs and unstable edges.

    The views from the top of Mam Tor are simply stunning, taking in the whole of the Hope Valley on one side and the whole of the Edale Valley to Kinder Scout and the Derwent Moors on the other.
    Mam Tor, literally meaning Mother Hill, stands at 517 m high and towers over Castleton
