February 22nd – Underground Trip to Masson Cavern, Matlock

Tuesday February 22nd 2017. Meet at 7.00pm.

A joint trip with Masson Caving Group.
Trip Co-ordinator: Vicky Bell. Please text/phone Vicky on 07792 757953 to confirm attendance.

An relatively easy grade, dryish trip into this extensive network of mine workings and natural caverns. From early “woodpecker” pick workings, hand picked ‘coffin’ levels to relatively modern mining artefacts it has plenty to offer and is interesting from both the geological and mineralization perspective. Nearly all walking size passages, with very little crawling – and no SRT – involved. An oversuit or old clothes are recommended.
Meet at 19:00 for a 19:15 start time, parking in the layby on Salters Lane, Matlock.
