Saturday 25th Nov - walk B details

Location: Mam Tor/ Castleton

Leader Bob Armstrong
Depart Time Stretford 9.00am
Travel Time 1hour
Grade Moderate
Distance 8 miles
Map OL1 Dark Peak
Postcode S33 8WA (Blue John Cavern)
Grid Ref 130833
Approx Ascent 1000 ft.
Brief Description Free parking on the road down to Blue John Cavern. Climb 300ft to the summit of Mam Tor and then walk along the ridge to Back Tor where we then take the path through Brocket Booth Plantation. This avoids a climb to the summit of Lose Hill. Walk downhill into Hope and from there follow the river through fields to Castleton. From Castleton, through fields to the abandoned road leading back to the car park. The last 1.25 miles involves a climb of 650ft. The alternative would be to park in Castleton at a cost of £5 and climb 950ft to the summit of Mam Tor all in one go, but very early on in the walk.
