Treak Cliff Cavern

View the days out leaflet for Treak Cliff Cavern
Enter an Ancient Underground Wonderland in the Heart of the Peak District National Park. Your guide will explain how miners in the 1750's constructed a tunnel using only hand tools to reach the Blue John Stone deposits inside the hill. You will see veins of Blue John Stone across the cave roof, and 'The Pillar', the largest piece ever found. Your guide will point out fossils in the limestone rock which formed the hillside above you 330 million years ago. You enter the mysterious Witch's Cave where even richer deposits of Blue John Stone are revealed. The guided tour descends even deeper into the hill where you will experience the wonder of underground limestone cave formations. Multi-coloured flowstone adorns the walls of Aladdin's Cave. Stalactites and stalagmites decorate Fairyland and the Dream Cave. The most famous formation is 'The Stork', standing on one leg!
