Set at the foot of the spectacular Winnats Pass, high above the village of Castleton, you descend the 105 steps to take an incredible underground boat journey through the workings of a 200 year old lead mine. Picture in your mind what it must have been like to carve out these tunnels using only the most primitive tools, as your guide recounts the story of the mine which opens into a network of natural caverns and underground rivers.
