Hey - nice one ULSA.  We brought some crap out of there a few years ago but didn't realise there was so much more.  Well done.  If any of you are at Hidden Earth call by the Ukcaving stand for a small reward.   :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Guess the year... Mars bars for 20p...

Brought out a container from the rubbish pile by the sump in Daren Cilau which had the following in on later inspection....

(Plus some old pants, not pictured!)





Lots more rubbish still there to bring out

Was any of it still edible?

Not sure, I have not opened any of the wrappers and not sure if I want to. The best before for the Mars was 1989 the rest appears of similar vintage

So it's been in there for three decades.

Amazing. Not far off becoming archaeology. Litter picking is a new concept, obviously. Well done for bringing it out and sideways glances at everyone who hadn't done so before now. Is the cave subject to a conservation policy with an overseeing body? Guess not.

Probably worth preserving as some sort of caving time capsule. They've even got playing cards to while the time away.
