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.

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.
