Exploring Cumbria – Lacy’s Caves and the Gypsum Mines

I am back in Cumbria to explore more of the its secret historic delights and peculiar fancies in a short series of videos. This is the first hidden in the Eden Valley.

I have joined up with local history enthusiast, Robert Croser, who in this episode takes me to Lacy’s caves, five chambered man-made caves hewn from the red sandstone rock along side the river Eden.

As we approach the amazing caves, we wander along the Victorian railway line that served the Long Meg gypsum mine works, near Little Salkeld, in the 19th Century.

My videos are funded by people like you. If you enjoy them, please help me make more:
