My article about last weekend’s epic Three Counties traverse is now online and will be in tomorrow’s Daily Mail. Photos by Mark Burkey and Bartek Biela.

David thanks for sharing the link. for me was a good report, enough embellishment with fact for the general public.  :clap2: :thumbsup: :beer2:

Somehow, David, your newsworthy article seems to have been replaced already on the mail website with a non-story about a YouTuber going down Daren.  :wall:

Anyone recognise where he's talking about (on the through trip from cnwc):
"...the  first narrow gap known as 'The Armageddon' - which is 16 inches wide.

They continue to delve deeper into the cave system before pushing into a tighter 12-inch tunnel known as 'The Death Squeeze'.

...He eventually manages to free himself before the pair arrive at their next challenge - a nine-inch tunnel nicknamed 'The Narrow Slump'."

Before arriving at " 'one of the most claustrophobic squeezes in the world' - a gap know as 'The Vice' which narrows to just four inches wide." [My highlight]  :shrug:

(His previous experience was in a sensory deprivation box - I feel he should have stayed there)

But then, is the three counties traverse really "the longest journey in underground UK"?
