Event description

Description

We are delighted to have partnered with Dolomite Outdoor Training to offer a range of activities that all the family can enjoy during the Peakender weekend. Activities include Climbing, Caving and Abseiling and are suitable for anyone new to these and wanting to have some outdoor fun in the glorious Peak Park.

Morning and afternoon activity sessions will be available Saturday & Sunday of the festival with transport included in the price running from the Peakender site to the activity’s location

Stoney Middleton is a classic limestone gorge dating back some 320 million years. It has provided many cavers with their first true caving experience. Beneath the bottom of the cliffs lie some caves and old long disused Lead mines.

We will be exploring some of the small surface holes and old mine entrances before exploring the cave system called Carlswalk Cavern. This is a natural cave but we will be using a mined entrance called the Gin entrance and exploring underground looking at fossils and the cave formations beneath.

This is classed as an easier trip but there is some stooping and possibly crawling if people want to get that far in. This will also depend on how much time we have left.

Minimum Age: 10 Years old & under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
