West Mine is the largest mine under Alderley Edge, and the main chamber, not far in from the entrance, is the largest single open space underground at Alderley. Nevertheless, it is small by comparison with mine chambers elsewhere in the UK. The chamber was excavated by using hand drills and gunpowder and probably took a couple of years to get as large as it is now.

Molino is a large cave in the Matienzo valley which is particularly easy to visit and is often used as an introductory trip for new cavers in the area. The entrance is a massive river sink and the river can be followed to a sump which has been dived to a large resurgence, also in the valley. The picture shows some of the massive stalactites in the roof of the cave.

In case of emergency at Alderley Edge, call POLICE 999 and ask for DERBYSHIRE CAVE RESCUE.   They will call out local team members.  Do NOT call for the Fire Brigade.
