This cave can be tricky (and not the safest of things) to find amongst the old spoil heaps and mine shafts, the whole pasture is full of them. The cave is located on a local high spot near rocky ground on Carsington Pastures' southern edge overlooking Carsington Water. The two entrances, one in a hollow the other on a small knoll directly above it, are both locked. stubob Posted by stubob
