Bet there's a long queue for Priddy Green bookings!

No need to book, just get a key and go... :p

Pull down trip not recommended at present unless you are prepared to free-dive out!

Don't think I would fit now. I did go in there when the other series was being explored. It was an interesting day out!

Descent magazine 262, June/July 2018, reports that all the locks have been changed. I'm not at all sure this is correct so I strongly advise taking both old and new keys until CSCC clarify the position.

Keys borrowed from clubs should have both attached.

Can confirm from a frustrating experience today, they haven't all been changed. Also learnt that the CSCC access officer doesn't have any CSCC keys to lend out, and that UKCaving is more up to date when it comes to access information than the CSCC's own access database :-\

At the last CSCC meeting I remember someone saying that none of the 'popular' caves had been changed over except Cuckoo Cleeves. I wouldn't be surprised if the two-key situation lasts for a while...

Is that because most of the popular caves don't have cscc locks..?

Landowners also have to be given keys before the locks are changed.
