    Re: Eldon Hole
     I’ve abseiled into Eldon many times and explored it. Charles Cotton (local gentry) never descended it. Legend states that a goose was once thrown down and emerged days later from Peak cavern several miles away with "it’s feathers blackened by the fires of hell"!
    It’s a creepy place. In my book Classic Caves of the Peak District, I said it looks like an "open Grave". Some years there is still a 20ft snow & ice plug at the bottom of it as late as July. The sun only reaches the bottom for a few seconds each day.
