Crypt'c Chris has it! Didn't spot this this morning when answered MikeM earlier  ::) needing me some glasses.

Nine Barrows it is - taken on a rare trip into the system a couple of years ago.

Over to you m'lud.

Not so easy - or just reluctance  :-\ ;) ;D :)

Since Nine Barrows, as far as I know is still closed to general caving, I would suggest "Not so easy". Or perhaps limited to the more mature caver that recalls when it was open and a few that have been digging there.

Because Nine Barrows is officially inaccessible then it's really disgraceful and extremely unfair posting pictures from this cave. I mean it'd be just like me posting some of my old Lamb Leer photos.

Looks like Withyhill at the end but the water is confusing me.

Thank you o Capitano. Most of my small collection of images are of obscure boulders in places never visited by cavers so I have put up an entrance and the answer is not " a tree ".

Ahh Caver's plural Maj. Seem to be on my own usually when the camera comes out.

Not Mangle Hole.

Mind you the tree might have fallen down the hole in more recent times.

Not that old. It was colour but I edited it to Black and White. Just not been there for a while.

It cant be that difficult as not many Mendip caves start as an open pot. Shall we just forget about the ruddy tree ? :wall:

Nobody is even close so it shows how well we all know Mendip. A big entrance like this as well. Not even a gate on it. :smartass:

Not confident but I'm sure there used to a tree by the entrance to East Twin, probably a wild guess but thought I would go for it!
