Mam Tor


On Wednesday I managed to persuade Dave to drive us up to Castleton as we had the day off together and I really fancied going for a wander. We ventured up to the top of Mam Tor, sat on the edge and had a little picnic whilst continuously saying 'hello' to the sheep, as you do. We didn't spend as much time up there as we wanted as it was incredibly cold and windy, although the sun was out there was also random bursts of snow and for some silly reason I don't actually own any gloves. After wandering around we decided to take a walk back down and then head into the village.

We found a couple decent hiking shops so treated ourselves to a few things for our trip to Norway next month, gloves were first on the list for sure. After that we just continued to walk around the village and naturally had a little spy on the cutest farm animals. We ended up heading home fairly early as it was bitter cold that day but I can't wait to go back in the summer and have a proper walk around Mam Tor and that whole area as the view over Hope Valley was absolutely lovely.

Have to been to Mam Tor before? I'd definitely recommend visiting.

Where are your favourite places to go hiking in the Peak District or UK in general? We're always trying to find new places to wander.
