Member's Comments on Mam Tor...

  • Nick Wakelam says...
  • Doing the BWF Caverns & Peaks permanent trail (13km) Great Ridge to Hope; river to Castleton and back up Winnats Pass. Very windy along ridge; but rainbows made the showers bearable.
  • Summiteer says...
  • Recorded as visiting this in 1990, but I think that was just when I noted down the Trig Point number, because I must have been there over a dozen times prior to that, going back to the 70s. One of the most accessible hills over 500 metres in the UK. Which is why it's usually packed with people on most summer days, and many winter weekends. Definitely not a hill for those seeking solitude. Having said that it is one of the Seven Wonders of Derbyshire, the Shivering Mountain, so called for the frequent landslips on it's eastern face. And was also claimed by the head of the National Trust, to be one of the top 10 viewpoints in England.
