Since the Middle Ages, visitors from all over Britain and beyond have been drawn to the magnificent cave system at Wookey Hole in Somerset where the River Axe flows through a series of chambers before emerging at the head of a rocky ravine.

For the last 75 years, ever increasing numbers of tourists have been joined by an adventurous band of cave divers whose aim has been to explore the subterranean Axe and follow the river ever deeper into the Mendip Hills towards the feeds swallets on the plateau above.

This book covers the saga of exploration from the hard hat, lead-booted pioneers of the 1930s through the post-War "frogman" era to the high-tech, deep divers of the present generation.

A story of triumph and occasional tragedy, it is told by the divers themselves and those who knew them well.

First published in 2010, the Cave Diving Group is now making this truly incredible book available to members and non members alike for an equally incredible £16 which includes FREE P&P in the UK. The book can also be shipped worldwide at additional cost.
