A couple of clues. It's not in the UK (obviously) and water levels are not usually that high!

There you go. I am obviously not a photographical type.

Note I am off to Mendip today so may not be online for the weekend - will check answers when I get back but I am sure someone will get this fairly quickly!)

I'll go with the less obvious guess of Henslers old/long crawl in Gaping Gill

I did the Grand Tour in there a couple of weeks ago.

Have a go at this - it's a somewhat historic photograph taken by Mel Gascoyne:

Hi langcliffe, what's the Grand Tour in Bull Pot?

That documented here. Briefly, it first visits the upstream passages via Roberts Passage, followed by a detour to Burnett's Great Cavern, followed by a trip to the downstream sump through the wet way returning through the dry way, followed by climbing out by the standard route. It was written because just as with Goyden Pot, many visitors miss the finer parts of the system.
