Peak Cavern VHS

Peak Cavern (The Devil's Arse)

The Peak-Speedwell System is the longest cave system in The Peak District with over 20 kilometres of passage.  This film explores the "Peak" end of the sytem with visits to Moss Chamber, the Trenches, lake Sump, Top Sump, Buxton Water Sump and other sites oof interest to cavers and non-cavers alike. It follows a "typical" club trip as they journey through passages ranging in size from tight squeezes such as "The Twin Eyeholes" to the lofty "Upper Gallery". Cavers who have explored the system will be able to sit back and reminisce; others may be tempted to take up the sport.

Peak Cavern Rescue Practise

DCRO Peak Cavern Rescue Practice

A training exercise stretcher "carry" from Squaws Junction to Victoria Aven. To the average caver a trip from Squaws Junction along the wide easy passages to daylight is something to do while waiting for your egg to boil. But try it with a weight of more than 100Kg and even with help it becomes an entirely different proposition. Then add the complication of an injured, shocked and helpless casuallty and the effort can easily sort the men from the boys.
The exercise is set up and oversee by the late Dave Edwards, and this video follows the team of volunteers as they negotiate submerged obstacles, the pitch at Surprise View and perhaps the crux of the journey - the chill waters of the Mucky Ducks.
