The Technical Speleological Group

Location: Chapel Works, Back Street, Castleton, Hope Valley, S33 8WE.

The Technical Speleological Group (TSG) is an active, Derbyshire-based caving club with a long history. Despite our name, we cater for a wide range of underground activities in both natural cave and mine environments, ranging from purely recreational trips to research, fieldwork, digging and exploration. The club has always maintained a special interest in the Peak-Speedwell system, and various projects are ongoing in this fascinating area.

We are based in Castleton, in the heart of the Peak District, and close to several of the best caving venues in Derbyshire, as well as numerous pubs. If you are interested in joining, come along to a monthly club meeting at the Chapel.

The best way of contacting us is to turn up at the Chapel in Castleton (our hut) on the first Friday evening of each month for one of our regular meetings, followed by beer in a local pub afterwards. Alternatively, you can write to us, or send an email.
