Any recent bad air reports down Knotlow?
« on: May 16, 2021, 10:59:14 am »
I am aware that in August 2020 Knotlow was reported to have bad air in one of the lower passage. Has anyone been down recently to say whether or not this is still the case?

Thank you,

Seemed alright to me a couple of weeks ago, keep it in mind when you go on a trip there and write in the book if you get any bad air. I’ve never really had any problems myself in there but have only normally gone as far as the bottom of waterfall chamber and back out.

... write in the book if you get any bad air.

Better still, always write in the book (date it) even if you found the air to be OK. Records of good air are just as important as the bad ones, and it means that a future caver can use your and others' information (and dates) as part of their decision making.

If you do get any can you let me know as i can record it into the DCA gas register.
I was there a week or so ago and the first chamber was fine.
