Gallery: Hike above Winnats Pass

Lying in the lee of mysterious Mam Tor, locally known as the ‘Shivering Mountain’, Castleton is one of the most beautifully situated villages in the White Peak. I approached through the dramatic limestone gorge of Winnats Pass and parked at Speedwell Cavern. Then I got to appreciate the fabulous views created by its location on the cusp of the Peak District’s breathtaking limestone and gritstone landscapes.

I hiked from Speedwell Cavern up to the top of the hills around Castleton, where I had lunch with a view and took some amazing landscape shots. The hike ended in a descent through the “Devils Arse” a well known former limestone cavern that is now open and typically very wet. On the left of some images, you can see the castle that gave Castleton its name.
