Mam Tor

Mam Tor which means 'mother hill' is a prominent peak above Castleton. East face of the hill is scarred by a huge landslide that gave life to many smaller hills below, hence the name. On top Mam Tor was an iron age fort of which a massive ditch/rampart and burial mounds are still visible. A great place to watch sunset, so it must have been 3 000 years ago.
