Judy and I had to go to Sheffield yesterday so we took the opportunity to book a room at Castleton in the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire, and spent a day touring the area. This picture was taken near the entrance to the Peak Cavern in Castleton, which is famous for its caves, several of which are open to the public.

The ruins of Peveril Castle sit high on a hill overlooking the beautiful small town of Castleton in Derbyshire's Peak District National Park. The 11th-century castle was the main settlement of the feudal barony of William Peverel, known as the Honour of Peverel, and was founded some time between the Norman Conquest of 1066 and its first recorded mention in the Domesday Survey of 1086. The town became the economic centre of the barony, but by the early 1600s the castle had become disused and was in ruins.

Having stayed the previous night at Castleton in the Peak District we decided to spend the next day visiting as much of the Peak District as we could fit in. The Vale of Edale is to the north of Castleton, and there is a very scenic circular route via Mam Tor and the village of Hope. This was taken just a little to the north of Mam Tor as we descended into the Vale of Edale. The hills in the distance are around 1,800 feet above sea level.
