This was taken in a chert mine in Derbyshire. After the chert (a form of silica) had been extracted, the waste was left in the mine retained by walls such as the one on the right.
Two flashes have been used so as to gain perspective. The nearby flash was not on the camera so as to avoid spots on the picture and to provide a bit of shadow behind the nearby objects.

This is a picture of the main passage in Lennie's Cave at Secadura, near Matienzo in Northern Spain. The cave is named in memory of Len Gee. There are two entrances but the one usually used is a flat out crawl that leads to a large chamber. See more pictures in the caving gallery. Sadly, the cave has not yet fulfilled its promised length but time will tell.

The next public event at the Alderley Edge mines is an evening trip at Wood Mine on Tuesday 18/01/2022.To find out if there is still space available, go to the booking page.

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.
