Yep, there's no access for regular caving trips until then as the showcave entrance has to be used. The only way into the Peak/Speedwell system at present is via JH (James Hall Mine), which is 200m of pretty intense SRT to get down to the streamway, and you have to exit the same way, so it's a big trip if you just want to see Peak Cavern. There's generally no access for cavers via Speedwell anyway unless it's for work, or some other 'unusual' reason. Once the showcave entrance is back in action we'll be organising trips as soon as is practicable, subject to whatever regs are in place then.Thanks for taking the time to reply https://www.peakspeedwell.info/https://peakdistrictcaving.info/home/the-caves/castleton/james-halls-over-engine-mine
With current lifting right or wrong why is any closed now ?
Ah that's me wrong then. Maybe me not going in the week is not having a key holder available

Maybe me not going in the week is not having a key holder availableNope, you are not wrong, there generally isn't any access during the week unless it is project work, for example I went in today to fit a radon detector, but it does indeed rely on a keyholder being available.And now some good news: - I met up with the show cave management this afternoon and can announce that, as of this coming weekend, we have lifted the restriction on numbers within the party. However - It is still one party per day, meeting the keyholder at the main gate at 09:45 (with completed indemnity forms and pound coins aplenty!) and be out by 16:30 (16:00 when there is a cinema night or concert). No through trips from Titan or JH and no late egress UFN (as in until the TSG hut is fully reopen to all once more).**Face masks/covers MUST be worn whilst traversing the show cave, entry will not be permitted without**Many thanks,for and on behalf of the Peak Cavern keyholders,Charley.
