Well yesterday morning really.  I was interviewed on BBC Radio York.  Cave rescue put them onto us to talk about the joys of caving in the Dales  (there are many). They didn't want the public to get the impression caving was all about rescue services.  Well done them and I hope I did a good job.

If you'd like to listen to Tim's interview you can find it here:

Had an on-site meeting in Barbondale this morning with landowner agent in the middle of a blizzard.  Sorting out a small conflict of interest between a number of parties including cavers and a shooting syndicate.  Good sense prevailed and an amicable solution found.  CNCC will be issuing some advice before the shooting season starts.

A follow up meeting continued discussions on future arrangements for Leck Fell.

As we say here at CNCC - Working together for northern caving.  Come and join us

We detackled our dig.  Spent the last few months down Marble Steps pursuing the dream. Unfortunately it ended like this.  The rock on the near right is about the sizeof a tangerine.   :(

Charging Lamp.

Experimenting with Milliputt Putty

Organising next digging trips. Hopefully. One is a climbing job up about 30m.   Another a new dig in a stream sink in a cave.

Emails re conservation project possibly to be filmed at Fairy Cave Quarry.

Thinking about what to do next at Vurley.

Maybe I am sad but its a dull old day here at the rest home.
