Mam Tor

Mam Tor is a 517 m (1,696 ft) hill near Castleton in the High Peak of Derbyshire, England. Its name means "mother hill", so called because frequent landslips on its eastern face have resulted in a multitude of 'mini-hills' beneath it. These landslips, which are caused by unstable lower layers of shale, also give the hill its alternative name of Shivering Mountain. In 1979 the continual battle to maintain the A625 road (Sheffield to Chapel en le Frith) on the crumbling eastern side of the hill was lost when the road officially closed as a through-route.

Nice day up and around the Mam Tor, worth a visit if your ever in the area.

Few pics from today..

The village green



Plenty of nice pubs and cafes below the Castleton Castle

The shale side





Worth the one hour hike to the top, the views..





The Summit




The road home..



The dogs not moved since we got back, all that sheep worrying has done him in

Yes, it's lovely around there, well worth visiting, one of UK's least mangled and commercially exploited stretches of countryside.

Went there myself last summer, it's a beautiful part of the world...

Can I ask though, did you cheat? There's a road which runs up to fairly near the summit - I didn't know that when I started the walk with the missus in tow haha! We walked all the way from the village, up the mountain and back down again!

When you grow up with scenery like this on your doorstep, it puts the rest of your life in perspective. My Border Collie loved it too.
Thanks for this little vignette, a nice taster for the southern pooves.

Yes it does. Lovely area and right on my door step too. There are so many great walks around, you could quite possibly not have to take the same route twice.

Oh god aI used to love to walk the mountains of Wales, then England then the wee hills of Ireland, Wales was my favourite, so anciently grand and alone, wanting no man.

Asian mountains, far higher, totally different, the almost perpendicular masses rising above you, with the great chasms below!

New Zealand,...ahhh, a totally different alpine landscape again!

Bavaria, then the Alps next time, I want a look at the Pyrenees..

After that,.... a scout down the Andes.

did the summit a couple of months ago, and i wish i was back there now.
castleton is a good base for a few days hiking and fish and chips bingeing.

god bless the north of england.

Hey Larry ... it's a bit tiresome going through bumping old threads.

Know it well, scenery north of Nan is similar with large rolling Hills.

The Dane and Manifold valley further south are also worth a peak /peek

Longsdon,Crowdicote /Lathkildale the Roaches which had wild wallabies and Duggie the troglodyte in 1970s

Funny you should mention the wild wallabies, actually thought I saw one in the headlights on the way back.
An old hippy in Nimbin, Oz, told me the story of Lord Byron and how he'd brought some back from his travels in Oz and their escape.
Thought he was stoned and talking Bollocks at the time....
Until I saw one with my own eyes.
They have appeared to have survived the rugged terrains by breeding with another animal and have become some sort of hybrid with a mousey head...
