I've had an interest in caving for a while, and although I've been underground before I've never been properly caving. It seems like a fun activity to do every now and then. I mainly live in Norwich but I'm also local to Cambridge. I've been having a look at clubs via the BCA and I've noticed 2 based in Cambridge which seem quite convenient to me. Is proximity important in this respect? Also, as someone with arachnophobia, are spiders a concern underground?
