Blue John Cavern

This cul-de-sac at the top of the closed Mam Tor road provides parking for visitors to the Blue John Cavern and others wishing to see the remains of the road which is steadily being lost in a landslip.

A parking bay has been constructed by Derbyshire County Council for disabled people to sit and enjoy the splendid view over the Hope Valley, Win Hill and the Mam Tor ridge. The parking area is surfaced in smooth tarmac with a gradient of 1:36, but with a cross gradient of 1:12.

An interpretive board accessible to wheelchair users has been installed nearby.

This is a great place to watch the hang-gliders sweeping through the skies. Take your camera!
