The Keep, Peveril Castle, which overlooks the village of Castleton in Derbyshire, England. This view shows the north eastern corner of the keep at the Norman castle. The square keep was built in 1174 on the orders of King Henry who reigned from 1154 to 1189. The keep was built on the highest point of the site which is a location of natural strength, with steep slopes on two sides and a dramatic gorge on the other side. Unusually, it was built from stone at the outset and it still stands at almost its original height. Peveril Castle is now an English Heritage property.
