Caving

Come and challenge yourself underground in one of the caves or mines located across Derbyshire. Our cave leaders are all British caving association qualified and can help you explore locations like Mouldridge mine, Chert mine, Ashford black marble mine, or naturally formed caves such as: Giants’ Hole or Carlswalk Cavern. Our instructors will give you historical information on the mines and caves that you visit, explaining how the mines were worked, the minerals extracted and looking at how caves are formed and the formations within them.  All equipment, including a helmet, light, wellies and over suite will be provided.

Lea Green Centre has an ethos of ‘challenge by choice’ with an emphasis on children and young adults pushing their own personal limits. Activities have varying options based on ability or confidence levels, these can be arranged by contacting the Centre for more information.
