    Harry Long's caving book is out at last!

    I also know Harry had a job where extended holidays where difficult and and quitting work wasn't an option. Plus personal circumstances. Not necessarily about the cost

    Harry Long's caving book is out at last!

    Think it's more back in the day, especially, family commitments and ability to get time off work

    Suspension Trauma

    Catastrophic bleed - in life threatening situation only. Generally after direct pressure failure..... Though in some circumstances (within you skill set) first action ie some RTCs

    GEO Headtorches

    I've been using Sorfin SP40 - single 18560 cell Zebralite clone, for while now. Fits nicely with my Phaethon and means I have interchangeable batteries.... I always carry 2 spare batteries. Plus the one in the Sorfin now. It's stood up to everything including several lake swims

    Environmental water “control”

    Another step to reclaiming our claim as the Dirty Old Man of Europe. Even more galling is that the UK was one if not the principal drivers for water quality improvements in the EU

    Not 100% The flag quarries around Bradford are underground.... They are called quarries in their name and are quarries on all the legal documents. That definition only considers the 2 in terms of The Quarries Regulations 1999 and the Mines Regulations 2014. There is a load of practice/...

    Certainly on this area - North & West Yorkshire, mine refers to metal and mineralised extrations and quarry is "rock". Be ut above or below ground. Flag stone and sandstone quarries -above and below ground , Fire Clay mines (or pits)
