Started as a Blue John mine over 300 years ago, Treak Cliff Cavern continues to mine, process and manufacture ornamental items and jewellery from Blue John Stone today. On the 40 minute guided tour visitors can see the most abundant veins of Blue John Stone in the world and some of the 'finest stalactites' in the Peak District.

To access it's a very steep path with s gross isn't of about 1:3. The path is about 500 yards long. That just to get to the entrance. Definitely not a place to visit unless you are able to walk up and down steep inclines.
