Abstract:
A group of men explore a cave Peak Cavern (in the heart of the Derbyshire Dales), some with candles in their hats, most with candles in the hands. One holds a quizzing glass to his eye as he looks up at the ceiling of the cave. They stand on the edge of an underground lake. One man lays on his back in a small rowboat on the lake and gazes at the ceiling above; a dog sits at his feet.
