Cromford Sough

Very interesting excursion this evening into Cromford Sough for seven of us. We met at the little "recycling" car park just as the rain started, kitted up and headed up the road to the footpath at the side of Ellie's Cafe. This led us to the round stone wall marking the entrance to the sough itself. The passage starts off quite low, with deep water and quite colourful "snottite" formations, but pretty soon gets bigger, and passes the arched brickwork of the side passage that comes from the overflow of the Cromford Mill Dam.
