Gateway On The Great Ridge by Rod Johnson

Gateway On The Great Ridge

A gateway on the Great Ridge near to Castleton, in the Derbyshire Peak District of England. The wooden gateway stands on a paved section of the Great Ridge, between Mam Tor to the rear and Hollins Cross which lies ahead of the gateway in this picture. The ancient stone gate posts shown here indicate that this is also the site of a much earlier gateway. Several people are pictured walking the footpath, which is probably the most walked ridge in England. The distant hills of Back Tor and Lose Hill are shown to the left and on the right is a glimpse of the Hope Valley.
