That must be correct thomasr :  the limerick - Limerick Junction in Easegill - Grapes of Wrath is nearby. Never heard of that bit of cave before mind you. These cryptics are too deep for me!

A clue perhaps?  If it's an anagram of 'graph software' (6,2,5) it's got me beat!

So sorry to pounce guys and realise my question is a few years late, but have been trying to track down members of either the Severn Trent Valley Caving Exploration Group or Darfur Ridge Group. I don't suppose anyone knows Stephen Johnson or his sister Caroline? They were involved with the exploration of Darfur way back in the 1980's and accompanied them on several trips to the site...
