Wenley Moor was a moor located in Derbyshire, (PROSE: Doctor Who and the Cave-Monsters) well known for its extensive cave system. Millions of years BC, a Silurian hibernation chamber was established there to survive the predicted global catastrophe.
In the late 20th century, a nuclear power research center was established at Wenley Moor. The experiments conducted there woke the Silurians. They eventually took control of the centre in their plans to wipe out humanity. After they were defeated, their base was bombed by UNIT. (TV: Doctor Who and the Silurians)
