Torhills Cave


No known access restrictions. Approach from St.John's Road, Matlock, and take Bonsall footpath for Shining Cliff Cave and Upperwood path for other two sites. Entrances not easy to find on wooded rocky hillside. Public car park in dale. Parking on St. John's Road not easy & likely to antagonise locals.
