Wit Tamdoun is an excellent cave in a stunning location. The only thing to keep in mind is that the first several hundred meters require swimming along a deep out of depth canal. The BHB Volume 68–69: Africa Atlas, 3rd Edition has some good information + a survey...
Does anyone have an idea of how many (the total number of) caves have been surveyed/mapped or simply sketched in the UK to date. Bit of an odd question I guess but an Iranian Caving Colleague has asked me how many.
Citizens with interest in all things caving.

Went for a walk in the Wormhill Area last Sunday and came across a couple of small caves in Flag Dale just above where the footpath crosses the dale. Neither are in COPD and both look like they have been dug at some time. Does anyone know anything about these? All the best :)
I have booked a 30 min slot (which in the light of recent discoveries is likely to be extended to 45 mins) at this years Hidden Earth in order to do a Peak District Round-up. This will most likely be a double act with someone from the Buttered Badgers Caving Club (Most likely Mark) in...
