Buxton Mountain Rescue Team called to rendezvous at Pooles Cavern following the report of a gentleman having slipped and suffered an injury whilst walking near Soloman’s Temple (Grinlow Tower) in Buxton.
As the exact location of the incident became clearer the rendezvous was changed to Grinlow Car-park near to the caravan site. Members swiftly climbed towards the popular landmark where they found the casualty from Litchfield patiently waiting and in good spirits.
Following an examination of the injured leg it was splinted before the casualty was carried by stretcher back down to the car-park.
