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 the past, one could almost literally walk into a new cave in Great Britain but these days almost all the open cave entrances have been explored. Now, it is necessary to dig one's way into unexplored cave passage. Sometimes, this means removing loose boulders, at other times it means shovelling out clay and sand. If there is a strong probability of a cave, then cavers will even resort to using explosives to enlarge a passage. This dig, reinforced with scaffolding, is at the end of Pooles Cavern in Derbyshire.

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.
