About this spot
Mam Tor, for most, is the pinnacle of
photography locations in the Peak District.
It boasts easy to access elevated views
of the often mist-lined valleys below.

This mecca for photography ensures on
any given day you are likely to have the
company of several photographers.
The 517m high hill is known locally as
‘The Shivering Mountain’. Due to its rock
composition of shale, it is very unstable and has frequent landslips. So much so, the A625 which used to be underneath Mam Tor is now permanently closed to vehicles.

From around 1200 BC, Mam Tor also used to be an Iron Age hill fort, which is clearly evident when viewed from the neighbouring Rushup Edge, and the ramparts can be clearly seen
circling the hillside.
