Perched high above the village of Castleton, Peveril Castle offers views of the Peak District. Founded soon after the Norman Conquest of 1066 by William Peverel, one of King William's most trusted knights, it played an important role in guarding the Peak Forest area. Following extensive conservation work on the keep, a walk-way erected at first floor level enables visitors to enter two chambers previously inaccessible: a medieval garderobe, and a small room with views of the surrounding countryside.
