Entrance of Son of Nettle


Call at Oxlow House Farm first where £2 charge is payable. Failure to do this could upset future access for everybody. Once access is arranged, best access is from the lane adjacent Eldon Quarry, parking on the lane but don't obstruct farmers gates or passing places. Access is through a gate on left of track near top end of quarry, top of track where the hill flattens out.

There is a fixed ladder down the entrance which should be avoided. Cavers should use their own equipment to rig the pot. Using the fixed ladder is entirely at your own risk. Report any problems to DCA.
