An amazing video offers people the chance to take a virtual tour of the Witch Mark cave at Creswell Crags during lockdown.

The popular visitor attraction on the border of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire is closed due to COVID-19 but a video of its underground wonders has been created from 3D scans.

The footage, made by Sheffield Hallam University lecturer Jeremy Lee, shows the hidden cavern known as the ‘Witch Mark’ cave due to the mysterious markings which carved into its ceilings and walls hundreds of years ago.

It is thought to be the largest collection of these ‘protection marks’ in the UK.

Creswell Crags says the video, available to view here, is ‘just the start’ of a project to make its caves more accessible through technology.

The independent museum, which relies on income from visitors, has asked people to show their support if they can by visiting its JustGiving page or texting CRESWELLCRAGS to 70085 to donate £10.
