The lead mines of Derbyshire have become a popular venue for many cavers from The Peak District and beyond and those around the village of Monyash are no exception. In this video we join a local caving club as they visit the most extensive of these systems: Hillocks, Whalf and Knotlow Mines that are liked historically and physically as the video explains.

If unsold, feel free to make me an offer. Shocked

Yes, I've used my uncles on many an occasion to transfer a few local interest videos that will never appear on DVD / Blu-Ray etc.

Just saying that for most people VHS is pretty much dead as a format, most charity shops won't even take the tapes anymore.

My Panasonic Super-VHS machine rocks, and has as high-quality image as most standard DVDs, with Hi-Fi sound to boot. I wouldn't trade it for anything Wink IP: 81.174.241.13
