    Made a little video this Wednesday 26th to show the draught at the muddy pit. Mike wise, Mike Waterworth in the video, with me filming some. Also a photo of a sandstone cobble about 12" long: Can anyone identify this fossil we found? About an inch long!:

    Na all good. Can add the plan up to date, still yet to survey the corners of some of the bedding passage and the boulder chamber: The red cross is the final squeeze, just before Golden Key chamber, the blue line is where the boulder chamber comes in/goes and the green mark is the muddy pit...

    The shaft bottomed out at 12m deep, from here it looked to dangerous to continue downwards, so we were forced to go horizontal into a slot slightly higher up. After a good couple of months engineering and stabilsing we progressed southwards. Geoff Newton in picture 31/07/22. 07/08/22 We got...

    Many of you may have heard about this dig going on, or even seen it passing by. The site is next to a public walkway and roadside,so even if kept quiet it wouldn't go unnoticed...The land it is on however is private! The landowner has been kind enough to allow us to dig here, their request is...

    Thou shall walk in Sandy Hole

    I find it bizarre how a rift this wide with a solid ceiling can open up so low down from the surface, being under such an immense load. Fair enough if there’s a chert band above it, but the nearest chert band we discovered was about 5-6m below the wide section of rift we first entered. Very...

    Mount Olympus

    Hi all. I’ve put a post up on Facebook (cavers of Facebook) and not had much reply. I’ve been interested in Mount Olympus for some years now since visiting it, it has the greatest elevation from sea level and it’s peak is at just over 2900m. From a little research I’ve learnt it has Triassic...

    So would it be any infringement if a village hall I knew that had a tv licence with permission allowed a person to play it through Amazon prime on a projector? (As long as there’s no charge and they bring their own drinks) :)
