A party of three cavers were reported overdue. A small team was mobilised to investigate and contact was made with the party at the foot of the shaft from the Breakthrough Window. One of the DCRO team descended to the Event Horizon from where communications were better and learned that all the party were well although very tired and that the trip had taken much longer than anticipated. They made their own way out to the surface with some help and support.

EA Peakshole Water level Logger at Goosehill Bridge, Castleton

The Environment Agency have installed EA water depth logger at Goosehill Bridge, Castelton. This is now live at: https://check-for-flooding.service.gov.uk/station/9595 . The water depth is updated every 15 minutes and the datum is the crest of the weir that was installed in 1984/5 by TSG and a group from Manchester Poly. The metre ruler on the left bank of the river when looking downstream from the bridge has the same datum so the levels on the web should be the same as the levels on the ruler.. The outputs contributing to the total flow are Peak Cavern, Slop Moll, Peakshole Sough and Russet Well.
