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.

Molino is a large cave in the Matienzo valley which is particularly easy to visit and is often used as an introductory trip for new cavers in the area. The entrance is a massive river sink and the river can be followed to a sump which has been dived to a large resurgence, also in the valley. The picture shows some of the massive stalactites in the roof of the cave.

The next public event at the Alderley Edge mines is an evening trip at Wood Mine on Tuesday 20/07/2021.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.
