    Cave Dale is a superb ascent. Easy access from Castleton makes it a great quick hike and fun for all the family.

    Formed from a coral reef some 350 million years ago, the limestone cliffs contain endless fossils for kids to hunt. Watch out for Peveril Castle high above you as well.

    As you reach the top of the ascent, you will come to a gap in a drystone wall. At this gap, turn right to follow another wall up the hill to loop back to the village.

    Cave Dale (sometimes spelt Cavedale) is a dry limestone valley in the Derbyshire Peak District, England. It is located at grid reference SK149824. The northern end of the dale starts at the village of Castleton where the valley sides are almost perpendicular and over 50 metres (160 ft) in height. The dale rises gently after leaving Castleton for approximately 200 metres (220 yd) before becoming steeper culminating in a fine viewpoint down the dale taking in Peveril Castle with Lose Hill behind (see picture). After the viewpoint the dale swings west and levels out with gentle gradients, becoming just a shallow depression as it peters out onto the open pastureland between Castleton and Chapel-en-le-Frith.[1

    This view from Cove Dale Valley is a hidden gem. It is like a tv location for a swashbuckling slaughter fest in medieval times of a sort....
