Culture-Iron Age Nature-Hill Nature-River Nature-Rock formation

A naturally occurring karst cave eroded from the limestone bedrock by years of rain. Set in the Wetton Hills of the Manifold Valley, this steep and slippery hiking route makes for quite the adventure! The cave shows signs of inhabitation from 11,000 years ago. Tools, artefacts, and the burial remains of seven people have all been found in the cave. A short walk from Wetton Mill takes you through a canyon and along the River Manifold up to the entrance of the 60 foot cave. If you've got the energy, consider including a loop around Ecton Hill and Wetton Hill too! Image Credits: Rob Bendall on Wikimedia Commons; T Chalcraft on Wikimedia Commons
