Mouldridge is one of hundreds of lead mines in the Peak District of the UK. It has never been a large enterprise but was worked right up to the middle of the 20th century when fluorspar became the main product. The mine is easily accessed along a single adit with sections above and below the adit. The mineral has been excavated from pipe workings, areas that are more horizontal than vertical.

In the north west corner of Scotland is a small area of limestone of considerable geological interest. The Durness limestone lies below the Moine Thrust and has a number of sporting caves developed in the river valleys in the area. The picture shows the streamway in Cnoc nan Uamh in high water conditions. The cave can be explored to a muddy sump before it becomes a place for cave divers, only.

The next public event at the Alderley Edge mines is an evening trip at Wood Mine on Tuesday 16/07/2024.To find out if there is still space available, go to the booking page.
