Winnats Pass Peak District

Winnats Pass, just outside the town of Castleton in the Peak District National Park, is a famed local beauty spot.

Winnats Pass, Derbyshire, UK

Winnats Pass is formed by a cleft in the limestone peaks and is a fine example of karst scenery. Note the exposed limestone crags on either side of the road winding through the peaks.

Winnats Pass is accessible from Buxton or Edale and can be visited along with nearby Iron Age Fort at Mam Tor, Peveril Castle and Speedwell Cavern.
