some are open and some have bat grilles. The most sporting is Cliffords Cave which is unusual for Devon in having an active streamway. there is about 2-300metres of passage. Skullcap Cave, a personal discovery with other cavers, has about 70 metres of passage and is well decorated at the end - or was when we entered it in 1989.  There are also cave in the grounds of Rock House. Skullcap survey is in a Descent magazine with report c. 1990

My favorite caving area.  Visit the Rock House (?) Garden Centre and pay a modest fee and you can wander around a couple of caves by yourself.  After a hard trip, treat your self to a cream tea in the cafe.

There is a book which lists 21 Chudleigh Caves....

I have a copy of the book somewhere. You can borrow it if you like buddy. Not much use to me over here.
