Heading west from Castleton - winter 1959
Heading west from Castleton - winter 1959
Winnats Pass, now the only way out to the west, is to the left, the gash behind the nearest telephone pole, and Mam Tor or Shivering Mountain, is to the right. The road was the A625 Sheffield to Whaley Bridge, which was continually being closed by rock falls and land slips from Mam Tor. Mam Tor won and the road was eventually closed - here it is now the A6187, and becomes a yellow road just at the nearest trees.
