Just after midday, the team were called to assist a male caver in Peak Cavern who had dislocated his shoulder. The man, in his twenties and a member of a university caving club, had sustained his injury in Peak Cavern's main stream passage downstream from the Surprise View ladder. He was treated by the team doctor and managed to make his own way to the surface with some assistance from team members. The incident took five and a half hours.

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.
