Having left Edale and gone up over Jacobs Ladder bearing left at top around over top to Mam Tor, along the ridge and ending a beautiful days walk with a descent past Losehill and into Castletown. Highly recommended

Always enjoy the walk here when visiting castleton, it’s a steady climb to the top of mam tor but when you reach the top the view is stunning, well worth a visit.

A lovely ridge walk in the Dark Peak District area with magnificent views. Wonderful memories of a bank holiday in August.
