Treak Cliff Cavern
We visited Treak Cliff Cavern in Derbyshire. We took a tour through the cavern and learnt about rock formations and the history of the cavern, which included hearing about when Victoria children were forced to work in the cavern to mine the semi-precious mineral, Blue John. At one point, our guide turned off the cavern lights and we couldn’t see anything at all, not even our hand when we held it right in front of our face. We had a great day and will be writing all about it in our literacy lessons. The day ended with a walk from the cavern to the historic village of Castleton. On the walk, we learnt why one of the other caverns in Castleton has a rather amusing name!
