Surrey Caves


Does anyone know how I gain access / info for caves in surrey? Sadly I had to leave the Dales last night and after a whole 12 hours in London I am experiencing underground withdrawals.

Surrey is not well known as a caver's paradise. I believe there are some "caves" in the sandstone in the Reigate area. Google could be your bestie here...

There's the hearthstone mines down that way, not sure what access is like these days though.

Not sure you're going to get that much caving in Surrey, but if you expand you sights to include mines, tunnels, bunker complexes and so forth you can get underground. I went in an old mine nearish to Tunbridge Wells the other week, which I found a nice little mini explore (Wellies, helmet, light, needed but no SRT :( ) Happy to PM details if you want to consider it. (Edit: yes I know that's East Sussex, not Surrey, but maybe nearby)
Depends where you are in Surrey, I live on the border with Hampshire and the Bath stone mines (Swan mine, Brownes Folly mine etc) are only an hour away.
