I had a walk up Mam Tor last Friday; for old times sake, this used to be a favourite walk of mine. Mam Tor means Mother Hill, this name comes from the fact that several land slips have resulted in small hills around the base of the Tor. It’s also known as Shivering Mountain. These slips occurred because of unstable shale layers beneath, the land slip is quite clear in my photo.
The views are stunning, towards Kinder, Edale, and Hope valleys.
There is evidence of Bronze Age and Iron Age settlements on Mam Tor, the hill fort is supposed to be one of the earliest in Britain.
It’s a relatively easy walk with good footpaths, I hope it’s not too long before I return. Now I’m heading over to Love Made My Home to see what other 5 on Friday participants are up to.
