Carlswark Cavern

Carlswalk Cave

Carlswark Cavern is a set of winding tunnels and passageways carved out into the limestone bedrock. It is home to the Oyster Chamber, which holds large brachiopod marine shell fossils. For those that would like to, we can start our adventure with an exciting abseil descent from the surface. We will explore the passageways below and eventually arrive back at the surface further down the valley. A great caving experience!

Peak Cavern

Peak Cavern, also known as the Devil’s Arse, is entered via a giant cleft in the valley wall. On the hillside above stands Peveril Castle. The cave is owned by the Queen of England, and the entrance is a vast chamber that used to be a ropery. It is now a show cave that still has equipment used in making ropes. We pass through the show cave to enter the cave proper. It’s time to get really wet and muddy as we negotiate many passage ways and follow the streams underground. It’s an incredibly varied cave system with passageways that a double decker bus could fit inside. Much deeper into the cave holds the Titan Chamber, the deepest shaft in the UK at 141 metres.
