This has been my first video that has actually turned out well. Previous ones were poorly framed and poorly lit. Thankfully a new camera method fixed the former and a customduo insert along with the nice openess of Eldon hole helped with the latter. I apologise about my weird ramblings that you hear but I think the ambient noise is important to the video and blasting music over it takes away from the effect.

This was just a gentle amble to pass a wet day while Nikki did some studying in the van. Nice enjoyable wander though.

There is a new cave videographer on the scene. This is the first in a series of documentary films which will be uploaded every week for the next 5-6 weeks.

I had a great time at the 2019 NAMHO conference, organised this year by the Cambrian Mines Trust. It's always a great weekend and this year was no exception. Many thanks to all involved in the organisation and running of the event.

Here are some of the highlights of my itinerary.

Please enjoy this surreal film of the Marble Arch Caves made by BBC Northern Ireland in 1985, featuring Tim Fogg, a busload of schoolchildren, The Pied Piper of Hamelin, and also the young Neil Hannon, later leader of the band The Divine Comedy.

Particular highlights include bad poetry, endless bars of meandering flute playing, and far too many choral performances.


Born Salzburg 1691. B.Phil. University of 's-Hertogenbosch 1718. Personal assistant to King Frederick of Liechtenstein, 1803-1857. Speaker of 35th Upper Silesian Parliament (fl. 1904-5). Owner/operator, Bridgend Underwear Factory, 1973-present.

I had another great day out at Wookey Hole Caves last week at the invitation of Chris and Becca, and we made another video of the Wild Wookey Adventure Caving route. Great fun!

Nice touch, Imperial measurements.  Not sure that I approve of solo caving  ;D

A bit belated, ttexla2 – but I enjoyed watching your NAMHO video (we went on pretty much the same trips, but at different times).

What do you make of your new light (the latest (?) Fenix)?

Northern Lights in Ogof Ffynnon Ddu. IMHO this is one of the Country's finest caving trips.

Excellent, thanks. Would you believe I've not actually used the new light yet, although it may get an outing this weekend  ;D
