Peak Cavern

The closest cave to Castleton is Peak Cavern, with an impressive entrance situated at the foot of the hill where the castle stands. For three centuries, until 1974, ropemakers lived here, their houses built at the entrance leading to the cavern. There are still lines of black soot from their chimneys.
