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.

Only cavers rescue cavers from caves. It may sound obvious but the other public rescue services are not equipped or trained whereas cave rescue organisations throughout Britain are always prepared. They are staffed totally by volunteers and receive virtually no state funding, relying instead on donations and sponsorship. At this practice, a casualty with a heart complaint was evacuated from Engine Vein.

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.
