ESTABLISHED 1847
HIGH TOR
Natural Crystallized Cavern,
MATLOCK-DALE,
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, near the
Paint works, and the entrance to the Cavern is at the foot of the
High Tor, - no climbing of the hills to get to it, renders the walk to
it pleasant, and being also dry and easy of access, Visitors will not
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 of
Derbyshire Minerals, at reasonable prices.

Respected Friend,-Having, with my family, resided for several weeks at Lime Tree
View, I have pleasure in stating that we were in all respects most comfortably accommodated.
Our apartments were thoroughly clean and warm, the provisions abundant
and excellent, and the attention paid to us all that we could desire. The house is delightfully
situated.
I remain respectfully,

Edgbaston, near Birmingham,. Seventh Month, 17th, 1862.
I have much pleasure in stating that myself and family derived much benefit and
enjoyment from our stay at Lime Tree View, where we received much kind attention.
The situation is beautiful, and the air pure and invigorating; whist the house itself is
comfortable, and the fare abundant, and we thought the charges for all very moderate.
