Ok it was cold, wet and windy as we walked up through the lovely stone village, along the fast flowing stream, through the steep, wooded slopes to the huge mouth of this cave. But with light ropes wound around the fence and a warm glow in front of us, we weren't that worried. And wow, what an evening. On arrival... More

Shopping and dinner in the town capped off a day that was a highlight of my three week trip to central England. My hinny bought some jewelry there for his mom... More

One of the most accessible caverns in the area, learn about rope making and Queen Victoria's visit. Wear sensible shoes.

Visited here recently started off very interesting with a demonstration of rope making and a vague wave in the direction of a rope makers house and also a short mention of the rope maker buried here. The tour was interesting and made more interesting by our guide but was very short and ended just when it was getting really interesting.... More

Thank you Ben our very engaging guide. Our first time in one of the caverns and it was very interesting, tour took about an hour, and was quite wet in places due the deluge of rain the previous evening. One family had been before so testament to the tour.
