Castleton to Mam Tor named as one of the ten most popular walks in the country

Five famous Peak District spots featured in ITV’s Britain’s favourite walks presented by Julia Bradbury and Ore Oduba; the list was based on the results of the largest survey ever conducted into the UK’s hiking habits and was voted for by more than 8,000 walking enthusiasts,

The National Park was home to five of the walks represented in the overall vote, with a walk from Castleton to Mam Tor, proving to be the most popular in the county with a top ten finish. The extended segment on the programme was presented by former Coronation Street and Mr Selfridge actor, Katherine Kelly, who enjoyed the views from Mam Tor with her parents.

A walk that started out in Edale and on to the highest point of the Peaks at Kinder Scout was named the 21st most popular route, while an elevated walk from Dovedale to Milldale that commenced at Thorpe Cloud and followed the River Dove northwards was named 26th in the standings.

The stunning views from Robin Hoods’ Cave were highlighted in another extended segment on the programme, with presenter Ore Oduba admiring the breathtaking scenery that so many of you have enjoyed while walking around Stanage Edge.

The Nine Ladies stone circle on Stanton Moor was also featured, this particular walk is in between Bakewell and Matlock, both of which are popular places for people to stay when exploring the Peak District.

Over in the Staffordshire section of the Peak District, the walk around the dramatic gritstone ridge called The Roaches, explored the dramatic views and unique rock formations of the area.
