A Gentle Stroll Round Peveril Castle

On Sunday the 3rd of May, I paid my first visit of 2015 to Peveril Castle in Castleton. The weather had been unpredictable all morning, but when I reached the top of the hill, the view was almost clear apart from a few bits of fog over the higher hills:

The castle was fairly quiet, even allowing for the time of year, so I got in a few shots of the general area:

Before walking up to the keep, and also taking some pictures looking down into the valley over the other side:

I experimented with the sepia setting on my camera:

As I left, the fog had mostly lifted from Mam Tor:

Off to Castleton again this weekend for the annual Garland (held on Oak Apple Day, except when that falls on a Sunday).
