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.

West Mine is the largest mine under Alderley Edge, and the main chamber, not far in from the entrance, is the largest single open space underground at Alderley. Nevertheless, it is small by comparison with mine chambers elsewhere in the UK. The chamber was excavated by using hand drills and gunpowder and probably took a couple of years to get as large as it is now.

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.
