I'm very lucky driving up Winnats pass every week to work, approaching it from Castleton is the best.
The pass opens up and starts climbing and twisting to the summit.
Sheep live wild on the pass so please take care if driving, they do stray into the road.
It's a Haven for walkers pot holers and tourists, once reaching the top you can carry on to Mam Tor.
Speedwell Cavern is very popular at the gateway to the pass, open most of the year.
It's a old tin mine were you go down lots of steps to reach the bottom, there you board a boat and sail along the old workings.
The roof is very low so if you don't like small spaces give it a miss, as you lay down in places.
Castleton is a fab base to explore the peaks,and blue john carvern only place in the world were blue john is found!
Lots of hotels in Casleton and Hope, all full of history and local charm.
