Mam Tor Sunrise Highly Commended By Society Of Photographers

Mam Tor, or Mother Hill in Olde English, is one of the most iconic places within the Peak National Park.

My sunrise image of the Great Ridge from Mam Tor has been Highly Commended by the Society of Photographers.

Mother Hill towers more than 500m above the little town of Castleton that nestles at its feet. The Great Ridge stretches out between Hope Valley and Edale and provides a great viewpoint to see this part of the Peak District.

This Hope Valley settlement is well worth a visit on its own as it is full of interesting little shops, a castle (hence the name) and is home to the local mining of the semi-precious mineral Blue John.

The postcode to get you to Castleton is S33 8WA.
