Great Views. We booked online and really enjoyed the Cable Car experience. We went to the fossil display and the historical Long View. We then went to the Cavern which in my opinion didn't lend itself to Covid restrictions. As masks are now mandatory the experience in the cavern is very claustrophobic and not a great experience so if you are worried about feeling claustrophobic I would give the Cavern a swerve.

Ever since Roman times, the land on Masson Hill has been used by miners hoping to earn a living by extracting lead from the hillside. Over hundreds of years, this activity created a unique landscape and habitat, which has since been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest an SSSI. On the hillside, just above the exit from the Great Masson Cavern is a Tinker's Shaft which provides a wonderful viewpoint over Matlock plus interesting information about the hillside.
The Great Rutland and Great Masson Caverns were transformed from working lead mines to tourist attractions in the early part of the 19th century. Lead mining had become uneconomical, the miners were faced with redundancy but found they could earn more by becoming cave guides.
This entrepreneurial approach worked wonders, as Georgian visitors were fascinated by romantic cave scenery and contemporary ideas of geology and visited in huge numbers to see for themselves. Celebrity figures of the time endorsed the popularity of these underground tours. Musical events and cavern tours were held by candlelight for many years, and it was not until that electricity was first used to light the caves.
In more recent times the Great Masson Cavern has become the more popular of the two caves. Steve Cobby one half of Fila Brazillia , and Harries and Lister ex Chakk, Sheffield steel city funksters formed the "model chill-out with dreamy vapours" Heights of Abraham in Airy melodies rub up against subsonic bass, aural hallucinogens hide vividly real scenes, and there's always a surprise lurking around the corner.
There's singing from Jake Harries' bass-tone voice, and the summer classic, 'EVA' that re-appropriates saxophones Lister away from chatshow intros and back into a glorious self-sufficient shimmer of melody.
You'd be hard pressed to find a classier set of tunes, tears and soul-food bass this side of New York. An instant classic. Chinese Sim. Polish 5. More languages. Dutch 3. French 3. Japanese 3.
