The imposing ruins of Peveril Castle stand high above the pretty village of Castleton in the heart of Derbyshire's Peak District. Mentioned in the Domesday survey, Perevil Castle is one of England's earliest Norman fortresses. The keep was built by Henry II in 1176. In the background is the massive summit of Mam Tor (Mother Hill), an impossing Iron Age Hillfort.
