Underground Trip: Holmebank Chert Mine, Bakewell –
LEADER: Paul Chandler (PDMHS/Masson Caving Group).
To book your place(s), meeting arrangements, please contact Paul Chandler. email@example.com
Evening trip. Easy grade, dry trip (although lowest workings are flooded). An ideal trip for novices and also of interest to experienced explorers. Mostly large, walking or stooping size passages and easy scrambles. The mine is quite extensive, with around five miles of passages! The
popular through trip is planned, exiting via the quarry entrance, with various points of interest enroute. An interesting mine and well worth bringing a camera. BCA Public Liability Insurance Cover or similar, essential. Access by permission from Oldfield Design, Bakewell.
