Mam Tor, meaning ‘Mother Hill’, is a 517 metre high hill and is one of the most famous walks in the Peak District that well and truly deserves a place on your Peak District bucket list!

Mam Tor sits on the edge of the Dark Peak (gritstone) and the White Peak (limestone) which means you get some fantastic views of the limestone parts of the National Park, such as the dry gorge of Winnats Pass. Winnats Pass is always a favourite amongst photographers so make sure you bring your camera.

Mam Tor is the main link between the eastern end of Rushup Edge and the western end of the Great Ridge, making this one of the most-loved ridge walks in the Peak District National Park. On a clear day you can even see Manchester!

Being located near Castleton, Mam Tor has a number of caverns just below it, such as: Treak Cliff Cavern, Blue John Cavern, Speedwell Cavern and Peak Cavern.
