Set at the foot of the spectacular Winnats Pass, high above the village of Castleton, Speedwell Cavern takes you on a fascinating boat journey through the abandoned workings of an eighteenth century lead mine.
Descend the 106 steps from the almost hidden cave entrance to the landing stage of an underground canal where you step on to your tour guides' boat.
From here your guide takes you through the workings of a 200 year old lead mine. Picture in your mind what it must have been like to carve out these tunnels using only the most primitive tools as your guide recounts the story of the mine which opens into a network of natural caverns and underground rivers.
At Halfway House the canal tunnel splits into two to allow oncoming boats to pass as you make your way 200 meters below the surface of the hill before entering a huge cathedral-like cavern containing the Bottomless Pit - a huge subterranean lake.
