Peveril Castle (also Castleton Castle or Peak Castle), Castleton, Derbyshire, England.
Peveril Castle is an imposing ruin standing high above the pretty village of Castleton in the heart of Derbyshire’s Peak District National Park and was built by Henry II in 1176.
A climb is required to visit the castle which stands as sentinel on a limestone outcrop looking over the west end of the Hope Valley, in the midst of an ancient landscape. On the north side of the valley is Mam Tor, which is also a Bronze Age hill fort and to the east in Brough and Shatton is the Roman fort of Navio.
It is open to the public and managed by English Heritage
