Rather English - Climb Mam Tor

An popular hill in the Peak District, topped off with an Iron Age hillfort, Mam Tor stands 517 metres high at the head of the Hope Valley, and its name translates as something along the lines of 'mother hill'

Despite the wind, your author thoroughly enjoyed the brief climb to the top, and even enjoyed the approach by car via the atmospheric limestone gorge of Winnats Pass. From the top, there are excellent views down into Edale and the Hope Valley, where trains can be seen working their way along the Hope Valley Line, and the outline remains of the hill fort are still visible.
