1.5 miles (2.4km) in length
Wood Mine is the larger of the two mines which are sometimes opened to
the general public on days organised by Derbyshire Caving Club who also
control access to this mine. Entrance is usually via a steel
manhole in Windmill Wood which is on the other side of the road to the
Wizard pub. The manhole entrance drops down into a long adit
the end of which is a miners' tipping wagon. On open days the
door at the entrance to the adit is used.
Wood Mine is linked to Engine Vein and other mines in the area via the
Hough Level which makes an interesting through trip.
