Mam Tor

Commissioned by Paul Evans for the 7 Wonders exhibition at the Cupola Gallery, Sheffield, spring 2010. ‘Mam Tor is a 517m hill near Castleton in the High Peak of Derbyshire, England. It is also known as the Shivering Mountain on account of the instability of its lower shale layers. In 1979 the continual battle to maintain the A625 road (Sheffield to Chapel en le Frith) on the crumbling southern side of the hill was lost due to a land-slip and the road was officially closed as a through-route.’
