Title: Peak District - Wezzit?

Fed up of those Northeners stealing the show with all their photos from their limitless collection of obsure holes, so here's a thread dedicated to our fair few...

To start it off, a relatively easy one...

Young Master Robert,
You may recall that me giving you and your chums permission to explore that new cave in Top Swallet Plantation was on the express understanding that it remained secret until such time that you had managed to source a suitable gate to secure said labyrynth. (I believe this gate was to be sourced from somewhere in South Wales?).

Anyhow, after being promised as to your continuing ccommitment to the ongoing secretive nature of the cave, you will understand my suprise at seeing you have posted a picture of the formation known as 'Mi-Lady's secret curtains' from the breakthrough series after the third pitch.

I have now other alternative but to seek a superinjunction against you and your resulting photography based antics. Say goodbye that Descent cover set you so dearly had your sites on.

You will be hearing from my people in the morning.

Yours,

Whatwotleigh

It didn't work. You appear to have referenced a file that is stored on your own computer. This will not work. You need to upload it to a picture hosting site (such as flickr) and then reference the URL of the image from that hosting site instead.

Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: Andrew W on June 24, 2011, 03:58:35 pm
Steviet_scg

For future reference, the address of the file that you need to use is the url of the actual jpg file. In this case that is:

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-LWNkpMWAzm4/TgSXFM-1iVI/AAAAAAAABkM/fvki4bGGL-k/who%252520knows.jpg

I got this by right clicking on the image itself on the picasa page, choosing properties and copying the above from the address field in the properties.

If you then put the above in the image tags [img ][/img ] (note that the tags should not have a space before the close bracket - this is just so you can see the code within this message) then you should get what Rob posted. 
:beer2:

Using the preview function before posting will also let you verify that the code is correct as it will show a preview of your post at the top of the page.

No idea where it is, but nice pic of a nice place (and before Old Git has a go at me –  :tease: – trite comment!)

Anyway, I took the liberty of dragging the image to my desktop and spent about 2 minutes in Photoshop Elements (£60 – can't afford the real Mccoy at ~£600) getting rid of the distracting tape. Would you like to see the result, Zomjon?
Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: Rob on June 25, 2011, 09:52:49 am
Great shot Zomjom, although i've got no idea! Hmmm

1. Phreatic, so mostly rules out the swallets.
2. Oversuit is clean, so mostly rules out most places, or it is simply close to an entrance
3. Limestone very orange
4. Stalactities and stalagmites = old
5. Taped well, so prossably an "officially protected" place

Nope, no idea!  >:(

I do believe that is the Grotto in Aussie Chamber in Darfar Ridge Cave, the scene of my recent (Nov 2010) filming with the BBC! (For the Countryfile program.) The tallest stalagmite in the centre is the one I mended with Superglue a few years ago...

find your chosen image online - right click on the image and go to properties - highlight and 'copy' the 'image url'

then click this button (http://ukcaving.com/board/Themes/default/images/bbc/img.gif) (above the smilies) which should present you with a pair of img tags
Code: [Select]
[img][/img]
paste your img url that you copied before between these tags and bingo, you should have it.

OK, so I've been a bit disaapointed how my photos have been guessed instantly, so I'm going to go with a bit more of a challenge this time.  Hopefully this is legal as it is in CoPD and it is natural cave (although quite a lot of mud has been mined from it)...  ;D

Haven't got the guy's permission to use his photo, and he's a lot older and bigger than when it was taken!

Because he hasn't got a lamp on his lid doesn't mean he didn't need a light of some sort to get where he got!

And, considering the nature of the cave, I haven't a clue how he managed to keep his collar so spotless!   :lol:

of course -  :wall:

thought the shade of the mud looked familiar - and of course - the old tourist lights. 

Infact - even the helmet, with no caplamp looks familiar, probably one of the many still kicking round the old green shed until recently.

It's difficult cos pearls can form almost anywhere, even nowhere near other formations.

Hmmm, lets see. They are pretty enough to be memorable by most, yet no one so far. So either they were found recently, somewhere very hard to get to, or somewhere that access is restricted.

I think the last is most likely, although not many places in Peak you need permission for....... Halfway House?!?

No secret, just a bit of fun.....

I went there a few weeks ago and did 30 mins digging and was through. Should have done one more trip 19 years ago!

Went back with Shaun and got to the base of an aven, now climbed (+35m) to a choke. It's another 60m to the WRS bedding and will almost certainly get there. Choke on vein, small, old, stalled with slight inward draught.

I'm still about  :) currently re-grouping after the Summer Hols.

Yes, I think we've been in there with young T, wasn't that where she asked you how long it would take for you to hit the bottom if she pushed you down the shaft?  :lol:

Hmm - thought it looked a bit like Rowter - Just cant quite place it though.

Is someone climbing something there - hence two ropes.  In the Abyss side of things.
I'm fairly sure they are not the ropes up the main shaft - since the hole in the floor looks wrong for that. 

I'll post sommat up tomorrow.

Still cant picture where it is - unless its looking over towards the holes at the back - where the current digging is going on.  Taken from a place just opposite hypothermia.  Difficult spot to get to though to get that angle I'd have thought..

Not Watergrove, not JH.
Not Rowter, but the shaft size is getting closer in terms of diameter, if not depth.
And I'd say you were looking at a lot more ginging in the photo!
Which should be a clue.

Spot on, Mel !!! Thorswood it is. I've been working there for the last three weeks with Len and John, underpinning a 300 year old crib which is holding up the nicest (and tallest) ginging I've ever seen. Was originally over 600ft deep (and self-draining through a swallet) but has now been back-filled to a depth of about 320ft.

Over to you Mel!

'The bottom pitch'! I only imagined there was one, so I suppose that would be the bottom as well as the top!
Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: mmilner on September 24, 2011, 09:59:52 pm
Well, the shaft has lots of 'mini pitches' and slopes, then there's a near vertical one, (50ft, I think), at the bottom with an iron bar belay down to the point where the continuation of the shaft down is unfortunately blocked...

Lol, naah. We SRT'd it but I put a ladder on the most vertical bit cos the other members of the team were only just learning and practising SRT.

As it happened everyone prusicked out with no problem and the ladder wasn't necessary!  8)

It is in the High Peak though, if that helps someone!

Im in a cave and its dark. The rock is grey and there is some mud on the floor (someone has written their name in the mud, looks like Matt Hope or something). Just ahead the cave bends and I cant see any further.  Where am I? :-\ :-\ :-\
In Adventure, the late 70s computer game?

Jim, who doesn't do cameras, used to go underground with those who do...
So to save us all from having to name every cave which is dark inside, here's one on Jim's behalf.

Hope you can remember where this one is.

Oh well - I will spoil it then, its bagshawe lower series, between the bottom of the dungeon and the point at which agony crawl drops in.  Nice bit of conservation in the making... to explain, when the cave was used very often, this calcited block was trashed as it lies slap bang in the middle of the passage.  When the cave fell redundant, for a decade or so, it started to recover and since its now being used again (by school parties etc), the conservation tape keeps them off it.  evidence of the recovery is visible in the form of a blue thread that has obviously caught on it as someone crawled over it in the past, is now disappearing under a layer of new calcite. Perhaps in another decade or so, the thread will be completely buried under calcite!!.

Anyway, over to someone who owns a camera, and more importantly , knows how to use it (unlike me!).

Cool story, i think i remember you pointing it out to me once while down there.

Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: al on November 07, 2011, 04:55:48 pm
I think Mark's right - it's the "open" part of Keyhole Cave, half way through, where there's an exposed entrance on the left and where the P bolts have been placed. If you squeeze through the short crawl in the dark bit to the right of the chap in the photo, you come out bang opposite the climb up to Ivy Green.

Bossen/Windy Ledge is a through route further right in the Stoney cliffs.

I was thinking of that small piece of natural at the bottom of the cartgate, where you have to duck under the hanging wall to look in?

I have used up my stock of not so obvious pics, so its an open go for someone with a good online pic.

From your photo page you need to click where it says Share, then Grab the HTML/BBCode, then copy the BBCode.

This is the bit you need.

Code: [Select]
[img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7011/6730543625_551536d064.jpg[/img]
If you post the link to the actual page where your photo is then anybody who looks will be able to see the tags it has been given, eg. Oxlow caverns 3rd pitch overlooking West antechamber.

Never mind wezzit - I want to know wotsit? Calcite mushrooms?

I think it's a lump of limestone (football size) with small 'popcorn' like calcite nodules along the ridge ...but then again, what do I know. Maybe someone else, who has seen something similar before, or even this very one, might be able to answer your question - teabag.

However, it's in a cave in the Peak District. What more do you require?  :-\

Not overly familiar with the Peak, not that it makes much difference in the pea soup, so I'll try a random guess of Bagshawe?

Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: Rob on May 30, 2013, 09:24:36 pm
The person who wins the prize is the own who correctly names the passage. It is in Baggers (basically the only catchment of note left) but not "just up passage from the Dungeon".....

I'll pick up a manky looking glove because I've only ever been to Baggers once and that was the accessible/non-gated stuff (reminds me, should sort out a trip to the stuff I've not been to). So, a random stab, assuming I've dug around correctly and this is actually in the FMS; Moose's Revenge?

It's a new way of taking ownership of a mine, avoids all that "Nicking" business and the Barmote Courts.  :)

Not just pick marks, a lot of finger marks too, where the clay's been worked around the deads - that's an airflow control wall you're looking at....

It's an obscure part of a well-visited one! I knew by banning Sam I might be giving out a clue, but it doesn't seem to have worked. But yes, those fingerprints are original miner's fingerprints, and they've worked clay into a wall of deads to stop a howling draught (which I can testify exists!) - I've never seen another example of fingerprints as good as this.

But for Jim's sake, and maybe everyone else's, it's predominately a pipe/flat-working, and it's more north than Eyam. And if you're in the Eldon, I assume you will have been here - apparently there was a clay pipe found nearby originally, but it ain't there no more...:(

Not Odin or Nettle. Not actually had a look at it myself, so only going by what it says on the back of the photo. Hope it's right!

It's from 1908, (and not the only entrance) if that narrows down any guesses...

None of the above, I'm afraid. It's always dry at this end of the passage.

To be fair, whilst not out-of-bounds by any stretch, it does require arrangements to access it, if that's any help? In fact, sod it - it's within a show-cave, but that's all I'm clueng for now.

Post by: pwhole on March 04, 2014, 11:48:16 pm
No, it's an interesting natural tube with an inlet at the far end and lies at the top of the Inferior Gallery on the north side, just before it closes down to the squeeze through to the Fairy Grotto. It points directly at Odin Mine, and is almost totally straight in plan, but doesn't reach anywhere near it (sadly). Trevor Ford thought it might be mined (from memory), but the only evidence for that is a shothole and stemple-socket outside the passage - inside it's all natural.

Indeed it is Crusader, which i guess makes it the first Wezzit of an undescended pitch.

For anyone interested the full release will be at the Peak District Round Up at Hidden Earth, although we will be putting a few teasers on the EPC website as we progress before then.

Barny was a "spoiler" so next best was TomTom.

Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: Rob on May 18, 2015, 01:47:28 pm
Bograt, shame you don't say the name, as it sounds like you'd get it.

Why did TSG stop digging there?
Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: bograt on May 18, 2015, 02:13:59 pm
Interest in the dig faded as we got further in and it got smaller, requiring more man power for hauling but only room for a littl'un at the working face, slow job.
 Good potential for modern digging techniques.

If someone can make an accurate survey to the working face, it could reveal a more accessible entrance from the little quarry above (where we dumped the spoil  :wall:).

SSSI permission required

As I said, not ready to post any pics at the moment so leave it for someone else to name it.

The top of Pedigree Pot is much bigger than  that,  about  3m long and a metre wide. The rope is also  belayed through a natural eyehole on the left.

I would agree that the pic is of the top of the tight section in  Ladyside Pot. That 40yr old spit is in the right place.

Our potential new entrance is MUCH bigger!

That looks very much like Wind Tunnel in Peak!, went up and down that 5 times in 7 days, early '80's, just prior to the breakthrough.

(Before Ben finally dug out the 'Trenches' from Treasury.)

That little vadose trench in the floor is a real pain!.

No to all. To make it easier, that's dolomite the coral's in, not limestone, and it's in the roof of the chamber. It's a popular and very easy trip, if that's any (more) help.

Hmmm.... In that case, Cumberland Cavern (remembering that you went in there with Andy Tickle earlier this year) - not sure exactly which chamber but I'm thinking the blackening came from the Trogg's campfires!

Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: pwhole on August 28, 2015, 07:03:36 pm
Yay! At last. It's In the fourth stope, just as you're confronted with that enormous boulder which you climb around on the way to Cumberland. There's an easy free-climb climb up behind and to the left of you as you enter the stope which takes you into a bedding passage in dolomite, and is shown on the survey in COPD to the left of the main drag - it's really nice and 'buttery' up there, and well worth a look. It could be a patch of selenite - there's some funny stuff up there, including the coral fossils - and there's more than one of those). Rod took a UV light into the fourth stope as we exited this passage, and mysterious patches on the walls and roof all started glowing ;)

Anyway - over to you.

Quite correct, Phil.

It's the shaft entrance uphill and to the right of the adit entrance. Drops down to a tight squeeze through to a cross cut into the main passage.

Hi Katie. I had a job in Stoney this afternoon, and, as I'd agreed with Bill that I'd check that there weren't still any digging tools left in John's dig at Layby Shelter, I nipped in there on my way down the Dale ... and I did wonder whether your picture was how it might have looked in an earlier stage of the dig. So that's my guess.

Alan, pretty sure SUSS have taken on Layby shelter, so any digging tools left there are probably theirs :)

If they have taken it over, they haven't left any. There were only two plastic kibbles and some rope, which I left in situ.

I actually bumped into SUSS in Carlswark, where I was working later on today, and they were removing their tools from their dig in Dynamite Passage - so maybe they were going to Layby Shelter.

Hey! I hope we haven't hi-jacked this thread! I'll be getting a knock on the door from Paul late at night!!!

I have to confess to having no photographs of Derbyshire caves.

In 2000, when I moved from Sheffield to live in Eyam, Badlad gave me a hand and we took a lot of old furniture to the local tip. The following week, when I was trying to find all my photographs, slides, negatives, a number of cameras and other photographic gear I remembered the last time I had seen them. They were in a bedside cabinet that we had taken to the tip. I went back to the tip to see if it was still there but, as I expected, it had long gone. Since then I've done a lot of my caving with Robbie Shone so never felt the need to take up photography again. I prefer being in them. I was never any good at it anyway. I suppose its a lot less likely that you would lose your entire photographic collection these days. Despite my stupidity I was insured for the loss of the cameras, but that was little consolation for the loss of over 20 years of caving memories.

I'll let Phil go instead as I know he's got loads of Derbyshire photographs.

There is another place I can think of with standing water in Odin, which is in the passage reached through the first cross-cut going back towards the entrance, which is on a false floor...

Going back to the wezzit, here's a colourful one from somewhere other than the Treak Cliff area:

It looks rather mine like and in possible close  proximity to toadstone. I'm sure I've been down a passage that looks just like this but senility is creeping in and I can't remember where.

Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: AR on November 20, 2015, 08:45:12 pm
Right on both counts, it is mined (although the passage does intersect natural in several places) and the colour is derived from toadstone - there were some cracking selenite crystals on the opposite side of the passage. Anyone care to put a name to it?

No, but I can see why you might think that - it does look similar. And yes, if Lisa were only 2" tall, then that would make sense too, but sadly no. And yes, the bluey-greeny stuff is natural colour. It is a mined passage but more than likely driven along a small natural vein cavity.

TPot - if it's the one you mean that is easily visible from the Hope road, but is barely visible at all from the Pindale road due to the slope - no, sadly, though that one has now been extensively photographed! I just called it 'Michill Bank Mine' as I couldn't find anything about it, anywhere - not on any old OS maps or Barmaster's charts either, which is really weird as it's on a worked-out vein, though is only one meer in length - the accessible bit anyway. Jim Rieuwerts now thinks it may be called 'Gibraltar Mine'. It's a very interesting vein too, as it heads for Peak Cavern, and I suspect it's either that one that cuts through Roger Rains or is the vein that the Devil's Cellar passage is formed on.

Anyway, you're warm, but not hot yet...;)

Post by: pwhole on December 09, 2015, 05:20:09 pm
That's close enough for me, though I suspect you meant on the Cavedale side? But it'll go on forever otherwise.

It's a semi-natural mined level in Peak Cavern Gorge, directly opposite the custodian's house, and first surveyed by EA Martel in the late 19th century: 'Galerie de Mine - 15 metres', but appears to be almost unknown, despite its proximity. Seems it was probably worked by 'Robert Hall and Partners' who freed a founder meer in 1800, 'a little south of Russet Well' - presumably with little success. There's a substantial buttress of deads at the entrance, presumably to stop it flooding in high water. There's some junk in there which could do with a clear-out at some point - also a tiny green glass bottle, which is rather pretty, so no-one had better pinch it!

Anyway, over to Katie.

It needs to be hosted on another site - if you can do that, get the URL of it, and then click the 'Insert Image' button in the edit pane, and two image tags will be added to the edit section. Paste the URL inbeteeen the two tags. Sometimes the cursor isn't in the middle like it should be when you click the button, so ensure it is between the two inner square brackets. Make sure the image is only about 800 pixels wide so everyone can see it, and maybe set it to 72dpi if it isn't.

Thanks Rob for helping. Welldone to Zomjon And pitlamp, both right although if i recall rightly Zomjon was the most accurate- i seem to remember taking the picture as i was waiting for my mate to come down the shaft.

I think this was the throug trip where we left the harnesses on the bottom of the rope, and when we pulled the rope up one of the harnesses got caught and fell off and ah147 had to go back down to get it  ;D

Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: Speleokitty1 on January 10, 2016, 05:53:53 pm
Somewhat off topic but has anyone ever wondered why most known coffin levels in Derbyshire seem to be clustered around the Matlock area? I can think of at least 7 in this area although some of them are not well known.

Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: AR on January 10, 2016, 08:32:38 pm
My thoughts on that would be 1) the terrain around Matlock means that a lot of mines come to day through levels, so more are easily accessible; there could well be a lot of undiscovered coffin levels elsewhere in the orefield 2) the Matlock-Wirksworth area saw a proportinately greater level of capital investment than other parts of the orefield hence more deadwork to improve the mines. Probably a question to ask Historytrog....
Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: Speleokitty1 on January 10, 2016, 08:57:06 pm
Thinking about the distribution of coffin levels further I realise that 5 out of the 8 that I easily think of in the Matlock area are on land that was owned by the of snitterton Estate. The original Oxclose Sough, an early sough to Leawood Pipe, a sough between Leawood pipe and Small Profet Vein (which also drains Noon Nick) Ash Sough (possibly one of the oldest in Derbyshire) and another in Leaclose Top Mine.

I seem to remember Margret Howard telling me that one of the people who lived at Snitterton Hall. When I dig through her remaining records I will see if there is any reference to this as it could also be relevant.

I was thinking more West mine, at the top of the slope near plank shaft crawly bits? The engine vein coffin level is clear but short and entry is clean as you step over the hough ladder? I may be wrong, I don't go often enough and a lot of the passages look the same.
Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: Mrs Trellis on January 13, 2016, 09:02:55 am
You're right it could be anywhere - imho West has lighter coloured sand being predominantly in the air-borne strata and EV is darker with the water entering the fault. Also there's not much hand picked stuff still extant in West & Wood.

I've had a go so let t'others knock 'em off one by one.

Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: TLH on February 05, 2016, 07:33:57 pm
I think the cow arse worms passage is slightly more memorable :)

And yes, The very end of the ice cream trail in Rowter, you can see the rope going to David and behind him is the pitch up and down (Can't remember the names). It's had a lot of traffic recently as it proves a nice sporting trip, hence why I thought it may have been an easy one :)

Good grief, slow reveals now? What is this - 'Catchphrase' with Roy Walker? "Ah, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof - I thought you'd get that one"...

As it's Friday, an uncropped GottZone wearing a rock afro wig, with the probable location of his wezzit if that were uncropped too...

It's an opening driven for ventilation purposes, in this case relating to the fireset workings in Devonshire. Sometimes it's because of bad air, as in Cromford Sough.
Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: al on February 13, 2016, 05:23:15 pm
It's the miner's term for the little windows cut between the parallel passages to enhance the draught and therefore bring about more efficient burning as part of the fire-setting process. John Barnatt wrote quite a comprehensive story about Coalpit Rake or Devonshire Cavern in 2009 for PDMHS. You should find it in the public part of their website. Well worth a read.

I think if it's too hard for anybody to guess, then you should be banned from PD Wezzit for a set period  ;D, unless you're pwhole, in which case it should be a permanent ban  :lol:; I mean, close-ups of odd crystals in mud, what's that all about? :shrug:

Seriously though, a mine level with stacked deads is only going to generate guesses, unless there is something there that somebody can recognise which will indicate the location - and that's most likely to be the usual suspects (you, pwhole, AR ...). So you'll have to give hints!!  :ras:

Trip report, now lost its photo links.. http://ukcaving.com/board/index.php?topic=9517.0 (http://ukcaving.com/board/index.php?topic=9517.0)
And the photos for thoise that have FB https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.207168562740377.1073741829.101523366638231&type=3 (https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.207168562740377.1073741829.101523366638231&type=3)

The mine is on a fault that passes under a road. This was reinforced but left with an access, and the ladder is descending the far side to ongoing passage...

Here is a sample pic of the altered sandstone showing Liesegang rings

It does look like Lathkill, but it isn't sadly.

It's in the Castleton catchment, and that mud is dry (but unmineralised) sediment. It's in a very accessible spot - if you've been there of course! I've just been photographing the next Wezzit today, so we'd better get this one wrapped up soon ;)

Over towards Chrome Hill. Not very long, but a couple of pitches deep, the last of which is down a nicely clean washed aven. It's one of those ones whereby it's surprising no-one is digging the bottom.

Does anyone recognise this shaft top?  It's very close to something well known, but I suspect only 10 people have been down in the last 15 years (a big spanner and WD40 was needed to get in).

It is indeed the Fortress of Solitude. Krypton's close, but a lot narrower than that one. Though I recently found out that Buster named all of these avens the Krypton Series, as the other blind one was called The Daily Planet. The only one that didn't have a name at the time this was drawn up was the one that currently bears it, presumably the narrow bit in the middle. Sadly we can't find the logbook with that one in :(

It's not one that you just notice, takes a bit of a rummage to find.  PDMHS bulletin 5.1 has a survey.

I'll say with certainty that the Wezzit is Carnhill Wife Sough, can't forget that one as we disturbed a wasps' nest on the way there, stung in places I didn't expect.  My photos from 2007 show you were with us Jim, remember it?

Okay, apologies for this one but it's about the only suitable photo I've got right now - this little vugh of twinned dogtooth calcite crystals is located in a seldom-visited part of an often-visited system.

As usual I have no idea where this is (I have a good visual memory so tend to recognise places but sadly not by name) but those formations look excellent, would make a great replacement for Ted if he ever lost a tooth  ;D

I've not been there, but I believe theres a place called the scaleahedron cache in JH mine (just below the workshop), is this it?

or alternatively in the Workshop.

No, not JH - it's not in the Castleton area.

I thought so - I was in it last week. Doh.

Another guess would be the slope down to the stempled passage from the first down-pitch in Odin, but it looks far too clean for Odin.

Isn't it actually Ravenscliffe Cave? You follow the climbers' path from behind the little car park next to the cottages and follow the base of the cliff to the south iirc. There are some interesting mine workings further along towards Cressbrook that I must get back to survey and photograph some time (so many projects, such little time!).

Hmmm, interesting one Katie, I suppose that if the pregnancy were quite advanced then there might be a concern about getting back through the squeeze (if it were a really long trip  :-\  ), but if that were the case then simply sit it out until the little one is born and then getting back through would be a doddle plus there would be the bonus of having the youngest ever caver in the family - SRT - carry a suitable kit bag and remember to adjust the harness !!!  ;D

Contemporary mine plans show it as going down to the 150fm level, so there's 900 feet of clear blue water in that shaft!

As for the photo, that looks very much like calcite/selenite stringers passing through a volcanic tuff, such as can be seen in a number of locations in the Matlock Bath area?
Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: Brains on May 10, 2017, 10:31:19 pm

Thats the place, this is the collapse chamber on the High Rake cross cut that runs south from the main passage at the bottom of the Great Rake. The attached is from the main passage, clearly showing the T'owd man stone stemples supporting deads in the Great Rake workings. The red colour is from the old colour works, which used to blow the extractors into the level.

I should have kept schtum, I'm a bit lacking in suitable photos right now. I'll have to deviate from usual form and go for a wazzit rather than a wezzit on account of the only people having been down this particular mine since the 1950s spar miners being myself and pwhole!

So, instead let's have the most inventive or entertaining explanation for what is depicted in this bit of graffiti the spar miners left behind....

Right, here's one of the two sites I grabbed a snap of this morning - it's in CoPD, with a description that annoys the hell out of me whereas the other site doesn't feature in any literature to the best of my knowledge, which would make it a bit difficult for anyone to get!

Edit - given the state of this place I'll probably be running a clean-up trip into this one in the near future. :furious: I've also noticed that the Peak Wezzit thread has now had over 290,000 views - shall we have a party when it gets to 300K?

Hmmm, so I don't know the name of it but i think it is the one that is at the bottom of the dale leading down from Haddon Grove farm towards the river Lathkill. On your right as you walk down the dale when you have nearly reached the river......
However if anyone knows the name I think they win!

Post by: AR on October 02, 2017, 06:14:33 am
Spot on with the description Katie, but as I'm guessing you've run out of photos to post the field is open to anyone who can come up with the name - of course, I could be pedantic and demand the proper name, not the made-up one from CoPD.....

Maybe I should have posted the other photo!

Sam - no body as far as I know but it did smell like someone had been using it as a toilet - I'll have to see if Christine's got some of the "no crapping" signs to put up in there :furious:

Apart from the "Roundabout" name I've always know it as Haddon Grove Dale Marble Mine but I'd be interested if AR can tell us the real name.
Title: Re: Peak District - Wezzit?
Post by: phizz4 on October 02, 2017, 10:35:55 am
The map in CoPD shows The Roundabout on the south side of the river. I presume that is wrong. When I poked my nose into here last year someone had stashed a tent inside.

Post by: AR on October 02, 2017, 08:57:36 pm
Your turn, DanHolme - thanks for reminding me that there's rubbish in the Far Gank Hole  that needs removing too. I may have a word with NE about the possibility of tourist-proofing the marble workings....

MCH - I know it as either Haddon Grove Black Marble Mine or Carter's Mill Black Marble Mine. I believe Dr. Barnatt has been researching the Marble Mines for a future paper, I'll have to ask him whether he's been able to find any documentary records that confirm which of the above is the correct one, I think it'd depend on whether it was opened before or after Carter's Mill was built in the 1820s.

Phizz4 - yes, the CoPD map is wrong.

I said I'd find a picture with a bit of additional interest to it.. hope you like this one...

Cave exploration often requires an understanding of the landscape and  being able to interpret it.
This leads on to meeting and getting to know the landowners whose land we find potential ways down into the caves on...

Here is a photo of two good friends, both custodians of land with important cave systems beneath them...

Who can name the landowner on the left and name the popular Peak District Caves  on his land?

Extra points ( as this is the Peak District section of the forum) ...
If you can name his counterpart on his right, a Yorkshire Dale's Landowner / Caver and name the  potential major cave beneath his land that we are presently exploring....

Richard.

It doesn't look like Mr Gregory who 'owns' the land around Eldon hole, so Id guess its the chap that owns the land above Titan. Don't know his name and cant find my Titan From the Top DVD (someone out there still has it!) in which I'm sure Moose thanks/names the landowner.  I haven't any pics anyway, so if I'm correct I'm sure someone will know his name and 'win' this one.....

It is very reminiscent of winnats head farm, but its certainly not Stephen or Joe Bradley.  And I'm not sure it is Winnats head - (no power line and no tumble down wall in foreground).

Perhaps an Ollerenshaw..

This is getting frustrating. Not something between Wirksworth and Carsington, like Godfrey's, Dream Cave or Foxholes is it (not that I have been to any of them). Possibly the climb into higher workings at the end of "Anglo Saxon level" (proper name escapes me for now), not quite on the Via Gellia. Posted in order to revive the post and get an answer.

Bit of a shotgun approach there Tripod, but you've hit the target - it's Fox Holes Cave, and a bit you don't want to climb down as there's an eight-foot drop at the bottom of that particular downward-trending pipe - a certain well-known mine archaeologist did start climbing down it and had a struggle getting back up on the trip I took that photo on....

Maybe we need something in the rules about one entry at a time, otherwise you could just list every site in CoPD for a particular catchment!

Incidentally, FYI to anyone thinking of visiting Fox Holes, please take care in the entrance passage, there are collembolla living in the puddles!
