English: Peveril Castle in Castleton, Derbyshire, England stands on a hill overlooking the village with an impressive view across the Hope Valley and Cave Dale. The castle is named after William Peverel, an illegitimate son of William I, who was granted Royal Manors of the Peak, shortly after the Norman Conquest in 1066 and thus administered the Royal Forest of the Peak on behalf of the king.
