Mam Tor


Mam Tor is an Iron Age hill fort standing at over 520 metres above sea level. The fort has defences which cover an area of 1100 metres, consisting of a single rubble bank which is re-enforced in places with dry stone walling. The bank has a ditch on the outside and would probably have been protected by a wooded palisade when occupied.

There are two entrances to the site both approached by narrow passageways, one in the South and One in the North. Bronze Age round houses have been discovered within the hill fort.

The tor stands as a focal point in the landscape and can be clearly seen from miles around - the tor is unmissable from Castleton, being the highest hill top in the area.
