Access changes for Stump Cross area... Short summary:The CNCC has decided to discontinue the former access agreement for the caves around Stump Cross area, including Mongo Gill and Great Expectations. This is because the terms and language of the agreement have not been updated for many years and are no longer a good fit with our current approaches to cave access. We hope to discuss a new agreement with the owners at Stump Cross Caverns over the coming months, but until then, all visits to the caves around Stump Cross will need to seek permission directly from the show cave owners.
For the longer (and rather more detailed) story please read the following:
We have stepped back from the long-standing access agreement to the caves around Stump Cross Caverns. We hope this is only temporary while we renegotiate a new, more modern agreement.
