Peveril Castle, Castleton
The castle that gives the village its' name.
Originally a wooden defence, built in 1080, it was rebuilt in stone around 1175 (at the same time as the church, which sits in the square below).
Address: Peveril Castle, Castleton, Derbyshire
'The Church of Peak Castle'- dating back to the 12th century, its' history is closely linked with the nearby Pevril Castle.
Of interest are the family box pews- (carved with the names of parishioners who worshipped here 300 years or more ago), a couple of bibles- including a Vinegar bible, and attractive stained glass windows.
