Access to Thrupe Lane Swallet


Thrupe Lane Swallet to receive CSCC Padlock


Following concerns raised by local parents, the entrance gate at Thrupe Lane Swallet will soon be fitted with a CSCC padlock. Access arrangements are otherwise unchanged.

Note that Hobnail Hole which ATLAS connected to Thrupe Lane Swallet in 2016 (making for an excellent through trip), is already fitted with a CSCC padlock.

Remember, CSCC keys are held by all CSCC member clubs and are usually available to non-members on loan from one of the Mendip clubs with a hut. These are BEC, CSS, MCG, MNRC, SMCC, and WCC

For more information, please check the CSCC website
