Winnatts Pass leads up from Castleton towards Mam Tor, a 517m (1,696ft) hill near Castleton in the High Peak of Derbyshire. Its name translates as Heights of the Mother and is also known as the Shivering Mountain on account of the instability of its lower shale layers. In 1979 the continual struggle to maintain the A625 road (Sheffield to Chapel en le Frith) on the crumbling southern side of the hill was lost when the road officially closed as a through-route. The road collapsed and much of it slid down the hillside.
