Small village between the Dove Holes and Buxton limestone quarries.
Stalagmites found in an abandoned railway tunnel contain likely the first documented speleothem-hosted ikaite, although pseudomorphosed to calcite.
The speleothem is connected with hyperalkaline (pH>12) groundwaters.
3 valid minerals.
* - Minerals that have never been found, but their existence is inferred in some way (e.g. from pseudomorphs)
