Peak Cavern


All these photographs were probably taken in the late 1940s, at the time of the major explorations being made beyond Mucky Ducks up to Far Sump. The gentleman in the fourth photograph is almost certainly Bert Marrison, the last of the Peak Cavern rope makers. Those taken beyond Speedwell Waters were probably the first taken in the extensions. The last photograph is of either Don Coase or Bob Davis on the first dive in Far Sump on 26th March 1949.
