  1. I've been waiting over three years to go here but due to one thing or another it just never happened. However with a weekend off and some good company I finally found myself under the moores of Middleton, a small village in Derbyshire set in the southern margin of the peak district where the last working limestone mine in the uk is located. This first thing that I have to say is that this mine is absolutely humongous! Over 20 miles of tunnels spanning over multiple floors with high ceilings and some huge caverns this was set to be a truly memorable explore. Although photographing this colossal space turned out to be a challenge in itself (as if the risk of getting lost or falling down one of the huge pits wasn't enough!). I'd say that in our 4 hours or so inside I don't think we saw over 10% of whats down there. It's taken me a very long time to get round to seeing this but I can guarantee it's gonna be a lot shorter time before I go back. Thanks to everyone involved it was a great trip!
