Is it the short level where Biggin Dale joins Wolfscote Dale?

That's it.  Not surprised you got that one ttxela, you were on the same trip after all.
Are we nearly there yet?

Oh well - I will spoil it then, its bagshawe lower series, between the bottom of the dungeon and the point at which agony crawl drops in.  Nice bit of conservation in the making... to explain, when the cave was used very often, this calcited block was trashed as it lies slap bang in the middle of the passage.  When the cave fell redundant, for a decade or so, it started to recover and since its now being used again (by school parties etc), the conservation tape keeps them off it.  evidence of the recovery is visible in the form of a blue thread that has obviously caught on it as someone crawled over it in the past, is now disappearing under a layer of new calcite. Perhaps in another decade or so, the thread will be completely buried under calcite!!.

Anyway, over to someone who owns a camera, and more importantly , knows how to use it (unlike me!).

Cool story, i think i remember you pointing it out to me once while down there.

I suppose once the blue thread is buried so much that you can't see it, we can then return to crawling all over it?!?  ;D
