check Permission required.
build Derbyshire Key required.

A tree-lined shakehole in field west of Hungerhill House, the whitewashed cottage to the north of the road. Mine level entrance has a plastic pipe installed with a grille, which may be covered in leaves. Spanner needed for access.

Call at Hungerhill Farm before descending (try the new house first, then the lower house). Very limited parking, probably best to park in the village and walk up. Not locked, but leave lid secure.

This site is part of the DCA SSSI Conservation Monitoring Scheme.
See the DCA website for competition details.
