Cricketers from village teams Threlkeld and Caldbeck take part in the world's first underground cricket match inside Honister Slate Mine on December 5, 2013 in Keswick, England. The Christmas fixture took part 600m (2,000ft) inside Fleetwith Pike at Englands last working slate mine at Honister in the Lake District. The game is one of many unusual venues the teams have played in to raise money to fix Threlkeld Cricket Club's flood damaged ground. The match was won by Caldbeck Village.
