The new revised and updated
Northern Caves The Three Counties System and the North-West
has gone to press!!

A book launch is in the planning stages and will be confirmed soon.

The book is 472 pages and covers:

Scales Moor      East Kingsdale
Kingsdale Head      West Kingsdale
Marble Steps      Leck Fell
Ease Gill      Barbondale
Dentdale, this chapter had become much larger and so there is a new chapter,
Great Knoutberry Hill and Garsdale
Wild Boar Fell      Mallerstang
Brough      Vale of Eden and Caldbeck
Bowland      Morecambe Bay
and other areas.

We have visited or attempted to locate every entrance and the photos and gps info will be available on the website soon.
The book contains all the information but not the photos of the entrances. There are around twice the number of surveys that were included previously. But there are full colour maps and photos as well. SRT information is provided in a useful way.

Here is an image of a double page spread:

Book will be available direct from us. Soon you'll be able to pay through the website or send us a cheque. You'll be able to pre-order for collection at the book launch or Hidden Earth, hopefully. £30 for the book £4.50 p&p.

Stockist will be:
Starless river
Caving Supplies
Moore Books
& Wildplaces

If other independent stores selling caving gear wish to stock it please get in touch. 

An enormous thank you to all those who have helped in so many ways is due to so many people so thank you all, to everyone who has contributed in every way.

A brand new Warmbac oversuit worth £100+ and in your size could be yours.

To enter post a Trip report (under Trip Reports, not on this thread, thanks) of your exploits either digging or caving anywhere in the UK this Summer.

A short list will be compiled (by me unless I can persuade Kermit  ;D) and will choose a winner from that list.

Thank you to Kermit for the prize and Mark & Jess Burkey for the fab photo  :thumbsup:

Entries close 10pm, Saturday 2nd September - Good Luck!!

We're delighted to announce the launch of a new website

Years ago, if interested in caving it was down the library to read 'The Spur Book of Caving', nowadays it's reach for the smart phone.

We therefore wanted to provide a modern, professionally designed website to inspire and encourage new people to take up our sport.

With the help of Dan at (who by coincidence happens to have a mine shaft in his back garden that cavers have recently made safe!) and after several months of hard work and invaluable support from many cavers we are finally ready to 'go live'  ;D

Thank you to all the photographers who allowed us to use their fabulous shots, to the video team, especially Mark Sims for all his technical help, to Adele for the use of her story and Southampton Uni for their excellent poster....and also to all those who responded to my various requests for help - even if we didn't use your photo, you gave us more choice and that in itself was so useful, thank you  :thumbsup:

If you know of a group or organisation who would be interested linking to 'New to Caving', please PM me or simply send them the link, thank you.

Please help us spread the word about caving to a new generation of cavers, share on social media or if you run a caving club (or other) website consider linking to 'New to Caving' - thank you for your support.

We hope you like it, cheers, Pegasus & Badlad
