Browns Folly - current access??
« on: April 29, 2021, 01:55:36 pm »
Thinking of a trip down Browns Folly, does anybody know what access is like at the moment?

Is there an up-to-date survey available??

Thanks for that Judi, I've contacted CSCC.

I was under the impression that new walls have been built and the 1980 survey is a bit outdated now, just wondered if there's an updated version....

Caves, mines, drains, culverts.

Yeah Darkplaces are very much centered on Bath / Box / Browns Folly and other local underground locations. Or at least, they were originally.
