SK0473 : Otter Hole

Otter Hole
Otter Hole
The resurgence visible beyond the two limestone garden walls is Otter Hole, one of the main sources of the River Wye (see also SK0573 : Wye Head). It lies on private land and even reaching this point required minor trespass. A recent housing development, Otterhole Close (part of which can be seen in the background), takes its name from the cave. According to the booklet "Caves and Karst of the Peak District" the entrance is "backed by only 36m of tight, immature passage", indicating that the cave is (relatively) recent.
