Title: Mendip Wezzit?
Post by: mikem on November 07, 2010, 11:40:22 pm
As the main thread seems to be going a bit slowly, I thought I'd make it area specific - so where is it?

The giveaways are the tarp & Ali's "No Entry" sign.

Personally I think it's great that the team not only protects stuff in this way, but is also digging a bypass purely to protect these formations for the future.

Post by: pete h on November 08, 2010, 01:04:39 pm
Its not actually digging a bypass but blasting a tunnel through solid rock, conservation and access at extreme levels.
We would also like to thank the C.S.C.C. who have agreed to give us some funding for this project.  :thumbsup:
Title: Re: Mendip Wezzit?
Post by: Ali M on November 08, 2010, 04:01:03 pm
Portal Pool is now effectively closed for the winter and the aim of this project is to complete a bypass to the Frozen Cascade by engineering a route from Sand Dig (in 100 Fathom Passage) to The Timeline. This will allow the 2009 extensions to be open for trips from next summer but please note that as Portal Pool and Diesel Duck sump during the winter (and also after heavy rainfall) that these passages will be only accessible for a maximum of 4-5 months a year.
 
The 2008 extensions have been open for trips since last November and there are 18 leaders for Charterhouse and include 2 leaders specifically for non CCC clubs. The 2008 extensions are not weather dependent.

No. Blimey, you're observant, though, Tony!

Not nipple rings - that's just the external clip-ins for the otherwise concealed built-in chest harness.

Sorry, Elaine; it's not Charterhouse. Try again.

Tony from Suffolk - well done you have it correct.  It is the wet way in Swildon's.  My kit is all wet but clean from climbing up the little waterfall bit on that route.  I was hoping the smooth rock, wet and clean kit would give it away.  Well done over to you! :)

I must suitably doff my cap to Mr. Burt for the fine picture which I'm being cheeky and using (my present computer does not have many Mendip pics on its archive and I've dredged the barrel of my own pics so need to rely on other people's work!). Apologies and hearty acknowledgements to Burt for using this.....

This new photo...Hmm...it looks a lot like a spot in Pettijohn but that's in TAG not Mendip. Hmm...OH HEY is it that squeezy spot downward forget what it is called but I saw it on a youtube video of one of the Mendip caves - it's like hard to find and it's the way to continue onward, you squeeze down and then out and then it opens up a bit again and I think usually people drop a rope to help get back up?

It's a narrow constriction just downstream of the third pitch in Manor Farm Swallet, which can become impassable in flood conditions.

See page four of this document for the survey/location:

Never seen it impassable but I'm pretty sure if you hung around in it in high water that you had better learn to breath water.  :lol:

To echo what Graham said I got caught in a fairly nasty flood pulse down Manor Farm back in the 1990s. Albert's eye remained passable (albeit with the water around my nose). Returning to curtain chamber the usual stream route behind the curtain was underwater and the stream was flowing over the pitch having entered the cave at the foot of September Rift. I'm guessing a lot of the water flows under the calcite.

(I have my doubts as i think cuckoo is bigger and their is nowhere to put the camera to get that shot.)

Not sure which is the giants staircase in Cuckoo Cleeves, and I assume the Canyon is the beginning big bit. But that's good enough for me - it is Cuckoo Cleeves at the bottom of the stream bit where it starts following strike and getting small.

So your turn nthingn

Wow! don't believe that! I was ni-on convinced I was wrong!

Got the names from the mendip underground. I'm interested as to whether i have got the right bit or just lucked out:

Have to confess I have no idea what "strike" means.  The bit I referred to as the canyon is a big gorge shaped bit you pop in to from the left (looking down the gorge towards the bottom) at the end there are two dips one is full of sand bags (old dig?) the one on the left has a small crawl on your side (i think the photo is the entrance of this crawl). On the other-side is a big slope to the right. the top of this leads to puke rift(?) and then to the legendary "lake" passage. left (as you face the slope take you to a small pot 2-3mø with a small stream at the base, right leads to a contorted squeeze out in to the bottom of the canyon. Am I correct?

Do i get to post even if i got it just by luck?

Will need to russel up some photos (may need to borrow a friends) but will post hear by 0900h GMT tomorrow (02/12/10).

(Its meant to be eta-beta-pi (as in eat a bit-of/better pie) but the forum doesn't render greek too well.)

I get this sometimes with images. Generally, if you try to quote the post, so that you can see the link url, copy and paste that into another browser window, not only can you see the image in that window but when you refresh the original one you can see it there as well.

In this case the first bit works but the second doesn't.

Try looking at http://image36.webshots.com/37/4/89/22/2243489220015322421uKyEJK_fs.jpg (http://image36.webshots.com/37/4/89/22/2243489220015322421uKyEJK_fs.jpg)

I'm gonna say that kinda looks like Swildon's especially the fact he's carrying a ladder so I'd have to say it's before the 20' falls but exactly where...hmmm...

Okay is it above the first shorter falls you come to? I think it's like 5-6' or something.

Title: Re: Mendip Wezzit?
Post by: Les W on December 07, 2010, 07:16:12 pm
I'll let you have that. It is Rods Pot, in the main chamber just above the route down to Purple Pot.
Title: Re: Mendip Wezzit?
Post by: Amata on December 07, 2010, 08:01:14 pm
Is purple pot purple? If so I have to see it. In the general wezzit thread there is BLUE in the new photo. BLUE! I've never seen BLUE! like that inside a cave. So now I am figuring it is possible for purple pot to really be PURPLE!
Title: Re: Mendip Wezzit?
Post by: Les W on December 07, 2010, 08:03:52 pm
It might be a bit purple...
...if you look at it quick after staring at a Scurion or similar.

No, I'm pretty sure there must be some purple there, somewhere. I only remember the mud. That was brown.

That really was a complete guess.. Credit to Elaine really, for reasoning out that it was a Burrington cave!  :smartass:

Title: Re: Mendip Wezzit?
Post by: Maggot on December 08, 2010, 11:32:35 pm
The yellow is partly due to my camera's sensor, but mostly it's the ochre in the mud (a form of Iron Oxide, not sulphur) - this part of the cave was mined for it long ago. The 'needly things' are fungi growing on the old wooden pit prop.
Title: Re: Mendip Wezzit?

Not quite, close though. What you need to do is back up, looking behind you as you go, Graham. Now when you get to the car park drive a few miles further up the hill and visit the correct cave. Therein you will find the beholdered formation and can marvel at it while your single synapse fluctuates like a quizzical sparkler.

Swildon's Hole, Les's "Special" Boulder, approximately mid-way between the Old 40 and the Twenty. It used to be poised quite a lot higher than it presently is but someone who shall remain nameless decided to jump up and down on it "just to check", apparently, and it may have become mildly dislodged. Or so the legend has it.

Wrong.
I didn't jump on it, it fell before I had a chance to jump.
I had climbed up there to photograph some formations, on the way down Paul Wakeling said "that boulder moved when you stood on it" to which I replied "of course it didn't, its been there for years".
I then pushed on it from the side and discovered that it moved, so I decided to jump on it to either bring it down safely or ensure it wasn't going to fall down on somebody but having climbed onto it it just fell, before I could find any safe handholds or do anything at all. After it dropped I fell off of it and cracked some ribs. It only hurt when I laughed though.

<semirelated question> what are those formations called? I've seen them here (in Anderson Springs down in TAG) and it was so cool how it looked like a coral reef (can't tell for sure if it's under water here, but it was there). Are they still helictites or something? Those are the only things i know of that grow funky. And what's the popcorn looking stuff? that's neat. </question>

(also, no fair I was gone all weekend playing capoeira and no computer or nets; I would have gotten cap'nchris's photo right that he said no yanks for! lol I liked that since it looked like a brain and I'm in neuroscience. None of  my photos of it came out though  :down:)

As a generic it's probably reasonable to categorise the rounded speleothems as frosted subaqueous coralloids; the broken straws have met a similar frosting fate as have the delicate crescent shelfstone edges. On the far left are micro gours on a flowstone gradient. If I was in a hurrry to get out of the cave then a swish of the arm and a vague mumbling about "formations n sh*t" would suffice.

<semirelated observation> I reckon the flowstone in the GB wezzit picture is more convoluted and akin to a parietal lobe and rolandic fissures than frontal. Whaddya think? </looking back>

Andy L: nope.

Ha! At last, one i'm confident about! That's in GB, on the climb up to the ledge that overlooks the Main Chamber, as approached from the Loop (cue much embarrasment when I'm totally wrong...  :-[ )

To be fair I may have been helped somewhat by the link to your Flickr page! Nice photos by the way.

Anyway this should be an easy one. I'd ask for the location but can't actually remember what it is called anyway so just the cave will do.

This is not actually one of my photo's - Pete Bolt took it - but I actually have very few pictures of Mendip caves since digital cameras had only just been invented when I lived there.

There is a good reason why this is not as difficult as it at first appears. Name of cave, the location in the cave, and reason why you don't have to have been there to know the answer, please.

Yes, looks like that little bit with helectites in that you can peer in just over the Bridge in GB, whilst pinning yourself to the wall to stop sliding off a sloping mound of flowstone that falls away into the Gorge.

Yup it is GB. You both got it, Elaine described the spot pretty close too! I'll let you two fight over who gets to post the next photo lol. (Although if I have to tiebreak I'd say Elaine because any of mine will be GB or Swildon's lol and so she was "more right" if there is such a thing)

You agreed earlier it was Rod's Pot, so I think it must be the pitch on the left as you are going towards the main chamber (although I haven't been down there.) In mendip Underground the survey shows it as 12m & the description as 14m. I don't think it is the Bear Pit (too tall & narrow) & it is too clean for Purple pot.

So you will now tell me I am wrong so I will have to go and have a closer look in the corners to find where it is.

I can tell you whose vacuum cleaner it was, if that's a help. It belonged to the gentleman in the white shirt, sadly missed.
i know it's going back a while but i've not been online over the new year weekend. The vacuum cleaner was in fact acquired by me, donated by Panasonic to the digging team after i wrote to them about ideas for unusual uses for a vacuum cleaner and they sent me one on the grounds i sent them a photo!

I don't know what it is called & I can't find a survey, so hope this is understandable:

I think it is where you are coming out from the rift, you go over the 'crossroads' then up a narrow but deep 'tramway' at the top there is a short climb/big step up which is where I think the girl is.

Baker's Chimney bypass?
Title: Re: Mendip Wezzit?
Post by: nßπ on January 07, 2011, 03:31:16 pm
hmmmm this is going to be a difficult one to call.

It is in fact (based on mendip underground and this trip report http://www.cheddar-caving-club.org.uk/Eastwater.html (http://www.cheddar-caving-club.org.uk/Eastwater.html)) the Bakers chimney bypass. I said approximately as I was expecting answers of bakers chimney or the bit between the aven chamber and the canyon.

What complicates matters is i'm not entirely sure where bakers chimney is (I have only ever been down the bypass). me's description Could either be getting out the top of the canyon or bakers chimney (I doubt it's the bypass as xe doesn't mention tight and it can't be called a big step up really).

So to go with me or Gerbil007? Gerbil007 is more definite about where but he was later to post and for that reason:


WINNER IS: me

I know I will regret saying this, but it doesn't look at all familiar, and I would think Charterhouse must be the cave I know best on Mendip. so I think it must be in the new stuff past Chill Out Choke. Esp as those formations on the roof are still intact. So I am going to say it is at the end of Rock and Roll Rift.

Mike,  I think that's close enough.   The view is looking up the shaft which lies on the left (heading into the Levvy) at the first cross roads.  This does indeed lead to the choke which it is postulated will connect with Pearl Mine.

OK, your turn now...

LOL well hey I can legally guess GB or Swildon's (If I understand the rules right that you're not allowed to use outside info like photo browsings and recognizing something) so basically I'll just guess the one of the two that looks right until it is :P I mean, GB and Swildon's don't look that much alike (at least what I saw in Swildon's, I'm aware there is a ton more than what I saw, haha).

Sadly the few GB photos that have been posted were always posted while I was away, and I missed getting them! haha.

PS to post a photo, have it hosted somehwere (photobucket, flickr, etc) and then copy the file location ("www.somethingsomethingsomething.com/etcetcetc.jpg" usually) between the image tags. Like this:

Well, I memorized them and put them back of course and then remember Monday I was alone until Burt came around about 2 or 3 or something?

Box Cave

I reckon Mr sparrow got it, actually. Although Les will have the final answer.
I recollect organising the trip that night to be in total secrecy as it was a little visited and currently off limits cave, as it turned out we picked the exact same night as a group of Atlas diggers who were also doing a recce (a legitimate one I might add) in the same cave. We all thought Les was going mad when we heard him talking to people inside, who would have thought a cave which hasn't had visitors in years would have two groups in one night? Apparently we were doomed from the start though, due to certain people informing other people of where we were going, right Hughie?  :thumbsup:

A classic night, couldn't make it up. Of course I wasn't allowed to do a trip report due to the nature of access, but I think Les has now damned us all.  :clap2:

The funniest thing was that for all our clandestine creeping around, the group we met were fully expecting to see us!

And it also turned out that the newbie that we had with us was good friends with the new owner, so I think our access was approved in retrospect.

As Les has damned us, perhaps I'll attempt (pathetically) to exonerate myself a little.

 Apparently the cat was let out of the bag following a post digging, wednesday night at the Hunters. I was chatting to Prew and happened to mention that myself and Elaine were going caving the following evening with Les, Gnome, and a couple of others. Naturally enough Prew enquired as to the whereabouts of our intended underground visitation. I replied, saying it was a bit of a clandestine trip, as there wasn't any official access. Unbeknown to me at the time, Prew was aware of the ATLAS visit to Chelms Combe the following night and presumed we were going with them - " Ah - Cheddar direction?" he said,  "Yes" replied I.

And so the die was cast. Prew must have mentioned it to the upper echelons of Mendips Who's Who - hence they were expecting us. As a result, quite probably one of the funniest, most memorable caving trips I've done - and we weren't even wearing full caving kit!

Another point worth noting from that particular trip - Mr Drum doesn't have balls of steel - they're made of pure titanium!!  :thumbsup:

Andy,  I think it would be a little unfair of me to answer this one - I know part of Les' answer is right, and i think that might just be my stinky as well...

Is it Goatchurch? and is it your wedding anniversary?

Les gets it - it's Goatchurch.  It was an anniversary but not my wedding.  It actually marked 40 years since my first caving trip - in Goatchurch, of course.  The four of us on the trip all used 'stinky' carbides to re-create the atmosphere, and the aroma, of that first trip on the 5th February 1971.

My turn: (http://i1177.photobucket.com/albums/x350/Peter_Glanvill/Grotto.jpg) and I reckon this will keep people occupied for a bit.

Well Mr. O'Doc, I was one of the main diggers in Carcass Cave,
can't really see it from your photo but I do remember Tim Francis telling me he was digging in Carcass when the massed hoards of the Wessex turned up one day
 for a spot of day tripping.
Soon after that Carcass Cave became very much bigger.
Title: Re: Mendip Wezzit?
Post by: Elaine on March 25, 2011, 07:19:44 pm
I didn't know anyone had ever taken a photo of Carcass!! Still don't know where this photo was taken. I think I dug there over 30 times. Mr O'Doc can you post another one to keep us amused until Tim gets back and puts us out of our misery? Pleeeeease? I haven't a clue where Tim's photo is of - it must be somewhere I have never been.

St Cuthberts has already been guessed - not that one.

Having never been down it, it was a lucky guess.

Try this one. Cave and approximate location please. I'm not sure how well visited this particular part of the cave is (though the cave itself is certainly popular).

Hmmm it looks a bit GB-ish and you say it is popular...I don't quite recognzie it though the ground doesn't seem all that familiar. Could it be (and I'm sure I'm describing this horribly) quite downstream near the "end" of the cave past where the climb up to the ladder dig is?

Will go for Manor farm (based on the red patches in the roof), though its not in any part of the cave I recognise - will guess at somewhere at the top of the maypole climb?
Title: Re: Mendip Wezzit?
Post by: Andrew W on March 28, 2011, 09:18:01 pm
Not Manor Farm either.

A bit early for clues but if you'd been there it is a very careful climb on the right to aviod the pool which has a very thin layer of calcite floating on the top of it. It is pretty close to the end of the cave in question.

As I said it might not be often visited.

This might take ages as most of the people on here have never been there including me. So it is out with the Mendip Underground (old edition) and guesswork starting with Beaumont's Drive (as I liked the name).

It seems too roomy to be anywhere in Valentine's series, though I've never been to December Chamber, and it's not the Cave of Falling Waters, I don't think, so it surely must be somewhere in the Main Chamber. Possibly the very start of the climb up to Valentine's Landing? I can't remember where the fixed aids began for that.

Fulk - that is seriously one of my favourite cave photos ever. I love how it's so well lit but has the dark edges. I enjoy full lit images and large rooms and such, but it never feels like a cave then, I've learned I like the ones that leave it dark framed so it seems like you're there looking at it with your own light. But yet...it is so well lit the formations are lovely and the composition is awesome and...ok I'll stop now. Seriously that is awesome.

It's somewhere around the Loop in G.B.
Correct so far as I can remember xD. I think I took this where you're heading downwards and there was a huge boulder in the middle and going downwards the right side is wider but you could squeeze around the left I bet (but why when the right is easier and plenty open?) and that's what I tried to stabilize my camera on some. Haha. I don't remember exactly but yeah somewhere around Loop I think!

WOO one that wasn't guessed right away  ;D Probably half because it's a shitty photo. I have to get back there with my much better camera now!

I had to...and it kinda does remind me of this shot i have from GB but I can't remember where I took it...being the original number on the image was low and before the numbers on the images where the bridge and stuff are, I must have taken it towards the entrance somewhere.

Not sidcot.  The squeeze isn't as bad as it looks in the photo (or when stood above it in the cave).  You are correct the photo was taken on the way down.

I think it might be the climb or slot down into Dragon chamber. :thumbsup:

I agree with treemonkey,
there are only two vertical squeezes that could look like that in Tyning's,
the other is adjacent to the scaffold pole that purports to hold up the roof /boulder
on the main streamway, where you can go under or climb up, then drop down.
But I too would plump for the vertical squeeze from Dragon down into Sheep's Jaw.  :smartass:

DAMNIT a photo I recognized!!! LOL yes I peaked at the one in the guy's bathroom when I was there alone on Monday before Burt got there. Uhhhmmm I have a photo of the ladies one somewhere...although I understand the Wessex has seen some changes since I've been there, so whatever was the ladies back last November.

Also the one Fulk just posted - AHHH yes that is the one I was thinking of in the ladies :D I think ours is better!

Aaah okay. And it's cool, I speak British  ;D Actually some of my friends tease me for having some British diphthongs and uh, I sometimes say toilets myself instead of bathroom/restroom, and I tend to say petrol instead of gas. Then again I apparently have some Southern accent too, kinda depends on the word. I think traveling has just messed up my standard Midwest accent (aka no accent, we say things properly! haha)

Dear Sir,
My man in the field alerted me to this nonsense from Miss Elaine (I'm presuming it is Miss?).
I would like to clarify with the good people that the above cited Cap'n Chris has not in fact been everywhere, as my man in the field was once in a place in which said Cap'n was most certainly not - and has the video footage to prove it - swearing to boot.
Of course, it could all be just some s'choolboy error', but I very much doubt it.
What's it worth Mr. Chris?

Well I did have my doubts before posting, since I too thought Cap'n Chris would have got it.

And yes it is very distinctive and pretty, but I do wonder how many cavers just think of it as a wet thrutch and not take the time to admire it.

So once again, a wild card for someone else (note to self:- must get a camera). I suggest give it 24hrs for someone to take the baton, that hasn't or rarely posted a Mendip Wezzit, if no takers open to all.

Following work done early 2007*, Cuckoo Cleeves' pipes have a mismatch on diameter sizes and since this isn't visible in the photo I'd be opting for Denny's Hole (or some other cave which rhymes with Twinnings Sparrow Bidet).

Hatstand and I did. We belayed it to the shonkiest chockstone you've ever seen! In fact, it wasn't really a chockstone, in that it didn't actually stay chocked. It was more of a 'delicately balanced' stone!
When I say Hatstand and I, I really mean just I. Hat was thin enough to squirm up the bypass. That bold step made me do an involuntary poo. Fair play to people who just stride across!

Title: Re: Mendip Wezzit?
Post by: Les W on November 11, 2011, 06:42:19 pm
Ahhh i thought there was no vertical in Mendip. Whoopsies!

What! No vertical.  :o
Granted Mendip isn't famous for its vertical caves but has some quite large pitches.
Rhino Rift is over 300ft of pitches
Thrupe Lane Swallet has several pitches including one of about 200ft
Hunters Hole has a pitch of around 70ft
The Twin verticals route in Eastwater is 2 x 20m (60ft) but only a partial descent of these is required. Primrose Pot is about 60m as well but in 3 stages. There are several pitches in the West End series as well (Gladman Shaft is 24m). Don't forget Dolphin pitch as well, around 40ft. In fact Eastwater has a lot of vertical really...
There is of course the famout 40' in Swildons (38ft) although this is normally bypassed. There are loads of pitches in the Priddy Green Sink entrance to Swildons.
Pulpit pitch in St Cuthberts is 18m (almost 60ft).
Star Shaft is 30m (100ft)
The new discovery Spider Hole has a 20m pitch
The pitch in Bath Swallet, Shower Pot, is about 60ft
Cow Hole has several pitches (one is somewhere near 20m) but nobody has been there for quite a while. It might be blocked at the moment.
There is also a 20m pith into Great Chamber in Lamb Leer, but the cave is currently closed.
There is 20m pith in Pen Park Hole as well, depending on the depth of water in the chamber of course.
I believe Dennys Hole has a big pitch as well (around 200mm)   ;)

Actually quite a lot of vertical I think.  :smartass:

now I am confused  :-\  where is 'eyeball aven' then?  :-[

Andrea I think it is your turn  ;D

The original route to Hanging Rock Chamber was Eyeball Rift - this collapsed and was bypassed by opening a rift at the top of the phreatic aven above the dig.  This aven is a very notable feature - it has a very attractive phreatic profile and it is definitely a 'sporting' feature.  Over the years the name Eyeball Rift has been transferred to the aven.  When we established the new Murlis Loop I took the decision to rename the aven 'Eyeball Aven' on any future descriptions and surveys- this preserves the original name coined by the MCG diggers back in 1990 without re-locating their original break-through point.  Take a look at:

Unlikely - as there is no known passage linking the two caves. The only connection was when a dye test from Goon's proved positive in Lionel's.

Not sure it is the loop. The only place I can recall with a flat mud floor and a stream like that is upstream from where the loop is, in Mud Chamber, towards Rhumba Alley. From memory all of the loop is inclined...

I could, of course, be wrong  :-\

Les,

I'm pretty sure it sdown in the loop, but then it was 8 years ago and now that I'm over 40 I'm willing to accept that senility is setting in.  To be fair, you were pretty close anyway - so I guess you can claim a moral victory and I am just a senile old pedant.

PS:  Andy still has to sort the photo out...

If it counts towards the JRat award, we've currently lost the rest of the cave as well to our spoil heap until we remove it to the surface, so by the time we've finished our shoring and cleared the mess from both directions, we should have gained the whole cave back apart from the entrance pipe!!

No not really as I didn't notice it under the pic.  In my defence I have probably spent as much time in Sandford as any caver, and I have done exactly that epic climb as well. Did you clip the ladder to the rusty old ring bolt...

Now, lets try this one.  Just the cave name, and probably easier than you think...

Well it's not Eastwater or Rod's, and it isn't underwater, so I'd guess at Swildons.

Top of Barnes Loop?

By the way, did you spot the crazy grinning face in the middle of the photo?

Is that the feature that can also be seen as a slim-waisted girl (?) with arms upraised?

I can see a frowny-looking face with a short beard to the right of that, and a face with fat lips, a flat nose and two very beady eyes above that...

Look long enough and hard enough and you'll see the two monkeys on the floor in the foreground...    :)

It's been on the to-do list for ages but I haven't got around to it yet, I'll put it slightly higher up the to-do list!

In the meantime, this one should be really easy if you recognise the ladder!

Ah good guess, but not quite! It's been a while since I was at waterwheel, but I think the steps there are uncoated metal as opposed to yellow.

Ah it's not I'm afraid, although they look like exactly the same rungs as in this image (https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/proxy/Ii2Ljl-7OWDAG1TwG0B_FXI5EPFGRuj02vEk9keartapNvLARKCj43yC10hz4PbKmjkdWPvhTy1-l1tBLqEZSDYQcv3tGa-nAhwv7MAJbinm3vwt) of Conning Tower Cave.

I did wonder that it looked a bit too deep for Conning Tower, but the whole at the bottom looked about right.

When did the collapse at the bottom of the entrance shaft happen? It's in MU5, so it must have been pre-2013?

Also, Flower Pot?
Title: Re: Mendip Wezzit?
Post by: tim.rose2 on January 13, 2017, 10:18:32 pm
Not Pinetree or Flower pot either. 

Incidentally anyone been in Flower pot recently?  It's one I've not been to and when we tried the farmer informed us the lock was seized up (prob 3 or 4 years ago now).  Never bothered trying since.

It looks to be a caver ( D. Price ? ) levitating through a cave. I knew he had mystical powers as he moved a 2 ton boulder off my hand once just with the power of mind.
