Important: Access to Pridhamsleigh Cavern


Well-known member
Cost of access to Pridhamsleigh Cavern at Buckfastleigh is rising to £1.50 per person from !st November. The farmer is fed up with groups (including commercial outdoor organizations) visiting the cave without paying an access fee.  He is planning to put in a CCTV he has got so concerned.  This could put pressure on other sites that have been recovering from caver abuse. If you go there please pay and you meet people underground find out who they are and check if they have paid.  We may have to resort to name and shame.

Thank you
