Bruntscar Cave

Bruntscar Cave is currently CLOSED.
This is because the Barn wall near the entrance is in a dangerous condition and liable to collapse. The landowner is keen to reopen the cave when the necessary repairs have been made. However, this may take some time as it's a listed building and permissions are required before the work can be undertaken.

Aah, that is one on the list of caves I should get around to visit, thanks for the update.

Have you mentioned it to the CNCC?
