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.

Slate mines in North Wales are found all around the perimeter of the Snowdonia mountain block. The slate was formed by pressure and heat due to volcanic activity. Slate mines are often massive and inclined as they follow the rock beds. They can also be dangerous with a risk of falling rock and bad air in places. Exploration requires a lot of care.

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.
