I went on the Engine Vein tour on Saturday, and just wanted to say how much I enjoyed it! It was wonderful to learn about an aspect of the region's history that you don’t usually get to see, and the guides were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I'll definitely be recommending it to friends, and looking out for future tours!


An absolutely fantastic tour around the mines. Well done to all staff who put this on and shared their knowledge with us!


Thank you for a fabulous tour of Engine Vein. (This correspondent said he would tweet some pictures and a video as well.  The video of Sally demonstrating single rope techniques can be viewed here.)

A great tour, yet again. Our guides were so knowledgeable. Looking forward to the next one. This is a must do tour. Thanks guys and girls.


Just a quick note to say how much I and my companions enjoyed our visit to Wood Mine (from Hebden Bridge) yesterday. Apart from the interest of the mine itself, the enthusiasm and knowledge of the tour guides and back-ups was infectious. And my friend greatly enjoyed the crawl; maybe Engine Vein next year, eh...


We would just like to say a big thank you to everyone at the open day, especially our guide Lauren. We had a wonderful trip underground, in honour of Barney's 5th Birthday.


A great tour, yet again.  Our guides were so knowledgeable.  Looking forward to the next one.  This is a must do tour.  Thanks guys and girls.  Keep calm and carry on digging.  xxx

Very informative tour of the Alderley Edge mine, could have spent a lot more time asking questions. Will be taking my kids next time.

Just wanted to say thank your for the excellent open day last Saturday, I and my flock of Cadets thoroughly enjoyed it.


My friends and I had a very entertaining and informative day out, thanks to the efforts of the Derbyshire Caving Club - we're grateful for the opportunity to be introduced to an experience most people will never have.  Thanks to all concerned -

Very good this afternoon. Lighting was spectacular - didn't really need a cap lamp.


Just wanted to say thank you for all the organisation and work that went into today. I really enjoyed my trip into Engine Vein.  If you could pass on the attached images to our excellent guide for the day (Can't remember his name) with my thanks and appreciation.  Best wishes,  Michael

Above Crocodile Crawl I went to your open day at Alderley Edge yesterday with my partner and a friend, we all had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had a good chat with two of your members about coming again or joining the club ...

Hope you can help...
Wondered if you had access to any photos of the crocodile crawl in Wood Mine. We came to today's open day and managed to have an extended tour and ended up going through the crocodile crawl.  My two boys are keen to tell the story at school.
