Mam Tor

Mam Tor is a hill near Castleton in the Peak District. A great climb in Derbyshire, Mam Tor has a fairly consistent gradient. It never gets super steep, but never relents from its 10% average gradient. There are great views from the top and it is an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is also called “The Shivering Mountain” because of frequent landslips.

There used to be a main route going over the summit (A625) from Sheffield to Chapel en le Frith, but continual landslides made this impossible
