Drove down Winnat's Pass, spectacular scenery and an amazing place. The next day took in the views from Mam Tor across to the pass. Worth a visit!

We drove down this steep limestone gorge with sheep and walkers wandering everywhere towards Castleton. Nature at its very best!

Amazing sight. The drive through the pass is breathtaking. We drove from Hathersage up to the Mam Tor through this pass. It was definitely worth the journey.

One of my favourite spots in England, this place is stunning even though it was raining it was still amazing! Be careful of people walking on/near the road (The roads pretty narrow and steep!) Would love to go back one day!

A real wow moment when you first see this place and though it is only a short pass the views are that spectacular that you will be blown away. You can walk or drive the pass, either way it has to be THE most beautiful part of the Peak District.

I've recently moved to the Peak District and decided to take my bike out to discover the area. We tend to do this without researching, to make it more of an adventure. Well, this pass was a surprise.

This is a pass that you drive through and it is outstandingly beautiful. You can enjoy a walk up to Ma Tor and around the area and two of the caverns are nearby. It's a short distance from Castleton.

A steep road which most of the trails run alongside with spectacular scenery leading down towards Castleton the higher you get up - will lead you upto mam tor eventually
