We've received some important news regarding a complete blockage in the system - please see Peak District Caving Info here:

The notice has also been posted for all the main entrances listed in the Cave Registry - Ringing Rake Sough (Youd's Level), Deep Shaft and Gentlewoman's Pipe.

Hasn’t this possibly been known for a while, there’s a Masson CC trip report from sometime in 2020 referencing meeting a blockage

Yep - just found it - we hadn't received any reports on this directly until last week, so it's looking like it may have been blocked for a year or so:

Are they really going down with no ascending gear? That caused the last rescue from this system.
