PRACTICAL LEVER WATCHMAKER,
4, QUEEN STREET, DERBY, & NORTH PARADE, MATLOCK BATH.
(OPPOSITE MR. WHEATCROFT'S, PLUMBER)

Watch Finisher, and employing none but competent assistants,

Natural Crystallized Cavern,
The Greatest Work of Nature's Crystallization in Derby
THE way to this Cavern is on the Turnpike-road northward, past
Matlock-Bath Station Bridge, or southward from Matlock Bank.
The approach is by a wooden bridge across the river Derwent,
Paint works, and the entrance to the Cavern is at the foot of
High Tor, - no climbing of the hills to get to it, renders the
it pleasant, and being also dry and easy of access, Visitors
have the remotest cause to be afraid. The High Tor Cavern was
visited in 1856, by the Ex-Queen of the French, and suite, who
expressed themselves highly gratified.
Visitors are cautioned against other guides, who would mislead
them, and prevent their seeing this Cavern which is the greatest
curiosity in Matlock Bath. There is also an extensive collection
Derbyshire Minerals, at reasonable prices.
