The ascent of Mam Tor, near Castleton in Derbyshire, England. Around the summit of this 517 m hill, is a late Bronze Age and early Iron Age hill fort. Evidence indicates that the hill, also known as the Shivering Mountain, was occupied from around 1200 BC. Groups of walkers are shown at various stages on their way to the summit.
