THE DEVIL’S ARSE, Peak District

Country Walking Magazine (UK) - - Discover -

So called be­cause of the flat­u­lent noises em­a­nat­ing from this cave when flood water is drain­ing away, it was re­named Peak Cav­ern in 1880 so as not to of­fend Queen Vic­to­ria when she at­tended a con­cert here. Still known to lo­cals by its old name, it’s the largest of four ‘show caves’ around Castle­ton, boast­ing the largest cave en­trance in Bri­tain.
