Holme Bank Chert Mine - Access Issues
The owner of nearby Holme Hall is refusing ALL access to Holme Bank Mine, regardless of which entrance is used. DCA is taking up the matter urgently with Chatsworth Estates, who are understood to own the land around the site.
DCA will seek to resolve this situation as quickly as possible but, in the mean time, we have to reluctantly suggest that cavers avoid visiting the mine so that there is no risk of a confrontation with the owner of Holme Hall.
