Ivy Green Cave

Entrance of Ivy Green Cave

Access

High in the cliff just east of the terrace and west of Cliff Stile Vein. Awkward climb to the entrance. No known access restrictions. Obvious parking spots close to base of crags and in lay-bys in the dale and next to electricity sub-station at foot of Eyam Dale. DO NOT BLOCK the sub-station entrance. Take care, as area is notorious for thefts from parked vehicles.

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