Day 2 Mam Tor and Castleton Caves

Day 2: Mam Tor: We woke up early for a walk up Mam Tor to once more enjoy spectacular views! Ravens circled the hillside and we enjoyed a pleasant hour or so before more tourists turned up…

The rest of the morning and early afternoon was spent visiting various caverns in the Castleton area where ths 'Blue John' (bleu-jaune) stone is mined. This spectacular cave spider was a particular highlight!
