Creswell Crags represents one site among a significant cluster of cave sites inhabited during the last ice age in Britain. The dramatic limestone gorge is tucked away within the gently undulating limestone landscape on the Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire border.

We will start with our own private tour of Church Hole Cave in whose dark depths lie Britain's only ice age rock art. The engravings of animals, birds and motifs are 13,000 years old. The tour will last an hour and costs £8.50, payable on the day directly to the visitor centre.

We will then explore the surrounding countryside passing through Belph and Welbeck Abbey on an 8 mile walk stopping along the way for some lunch.
