Note - 10/08/22 - the passage above Old Jant Mine leading to Gentlewoman's Pipe, which was blocked by collapse, has been re-opened after protracted digging by the Peak Caving Club, and so trips uphill from the sough are now possible again.
Lidded shaft entrance/exit near the sough tail by the River Derwent at Artist's Corner, next to the swings, formerly known as 'Youd's Level'. Lid can be opened from inside without a key; the key to open from the outside is available from the Mining Museum at Matlock Bath. Sough connects to the coffin-level of Masson Sough internally. Deep Shaft is open, and lands near the 'Y' junction two-thirds of the way along the coffin-level - access via Greenhills Farm. Masson Sough eventually connects via Old Jant Mine to Gentlewoman's Pipe at the top of Masson Hill. Entire system is part of Masson Hill SSSI.
