Slate mines in North Wales are found all around the perimeter of the Snowdonia mountain block. The slate was formed by pressure and heat due to volcanic activity. Slate mines are often massive and inclined as they follow the rock beds. They can also be dangerous with a risk of falling rock and bad air in places. Exploration requires a lot of care.

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.

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.
