Castleton stands on the dividing line between the Dark and the White Peaks, which to many simply means one is more rugged whilst the other is mainly rolling hills and more mellow countryside.
The White Peak consists mainly of limestone outcrops and houses are built of a distinctive grey stone. In contrast, the Dark Peak, which surrounds the White Peak, is more elevated with darker gritstone, sandstone, and shale. Being on that dividing line between the two, Castleton’s famous Mam Tor is mainly shale, and is known as the “Shivering Mountain” due to the fact it is always on the move! The road that ran around the bottom of the hill, suffered greatly from subsidence, and was finally closed in the late 1970s.
Whichever camp Castleton decides to lie, It is a quaint village, popular with tourists, but once out of the village centre, the countryside is quiet and peaceful, a place where rare wild flowers grow and the visitor can feel a part of their surroundings.
Every piece we create tells a story and fades into white, leaving the viewer with the impression of a world outside the scene, and a story yet to be told. In fact every piece comes to you with a story about it with an accompanying card with your wall art or on the reverse of the greetings card.
Each print takes many hours to produce, using layers, masks, overlay, textures and creative techniques to produce a fine art piece you will be proud to have in your home. We do not use automated processes of any sort.
