No-one's got it yet - I did suggest it might be a challenge.

OK then, another clue; the name of the club most associated with this cave is the Gritstone Club.

Now it should be easy!

Come on Fulk - is your memory that bad?

If you can get this we're in with a chance of the next picture being a really nice one!

Nay.

I never thought I'd get you (of all people) with this one.

Try looking in your copy of the 1976 Gritstone Journal as a memory jogger. ;-)

I've been working on Gritstone Club for the last two days (OK, for 10 mins some time in the last two days) and haven't got it.

Greensett Cave (I don't really think it is but it's got enough entrances to be in with a chance). Green Slack Cave, Greta Bank Gill Cave. Yes, I'm guessing.

'Fraid not Kay. (Not one of the Ling Gill caves either.)

Come on Fulk . . . ! It's definitely a Gritstone exploration and I think, from memory, you were involved.

No? OK, another clue. It's a resurgence high in the headwaters of what becomes the River Ribble.
Surely that narrows it down . . . .

Nope. Scratching my head to try and think of further clues . . .

OK, this really does give the game away: "Explored 1973-76, Gritstone Club".

RobinGriffiths has it; phew, we eventually got there.
Yes, it's a bit of a stroll but less than GG from Clapham.

Anyway, all yours Robin.

Clearly, this is a quarry, but it does have some phreatic fragments, one providing a short and snug through trip.
