REPORT

Bagshawe Cavern

3rd July 2016 - Callum Ewan - SK 1714 8088

Myself, Yvonne King, Steve Mills and Robert Stevenson headed to a bustling TSG hut in Castleton on Sunday morning where we met up with two tired but triumphant Titan conquerors, Anton Petho and Lauren Griffin.

After a chat and breakfast (priorities!) we headed up to Bagshawe Cavern, about 10 minutes from Castleton. Bagshawe Cavern was discovered in 1806 by miners and was named after the landlord and 'Apostle of the Peak', Sir William Bagshawe.

Lauren had a fight with the lock on the stone building above the cavern, but eventually put it in its place, and we descended the steps and reached The Dungeon. Anton rigged up the ladder and we started our decent to the lower series – but before we all climbed down we heard a few loud gasps and splashes from Lauren – and quickly decided to take a different route.

We continued to the Hippodrome and unfortunately, as per previous DCC trips, there were still no hippos. Further down we had a quick visit to the Glory Hole, and continued on to a stream until we could go no further! There seems to be a lot more to see and explore, so a further trip may be necessary in the future!

Epilogue

Following the trip we drove over to The Wanted to meet up with a number of DCC members including Olly King, Andrew Farrow, and Tom Howard. We watched a cow playing in the children’s playground and then decided to have a go ourselves!
