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 the north west corner of Scotland is a small area of limestone of considerable geological interest. The Durness limestone lies below the Moine Thrust and has a number of sporting caves developed in the river valleys in the area. The picture shows the streamway in Cnoc nan Uamh in high water conditions. The cave can be explored to a muddy sump before it becomes a place for cave divers, only.

The next public event at the Alderley Edge mines is an evening trip at Wood Mine on Tuesday 15/02/2022.To find out if there is still space available, go to the booking page.

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.
