Lancashire and the Peaks Sights



Peak Cavern

Peak Cavern Review

Caves riddle the entire town and the surrounding area, and in the massive Peak Caverns, rope making has been done on a great ropewalk for more than 400 years. You can still see the remains of the 17th-century rope makers' village. Some trivia to keep kids amused: the Peak Caverns were historically called the "Devil's Arse," due to the flatulent noise that water makes when draining out of the caves.
