BCRA Fieldtrip: Geology and Geomorphology of GB Cave
« on: September 05, 2018, 10:52:26 am »
For those who would like to get underground, BCRA will be running a post Cave Science Symposium field trip on Sunday 14th October to GB Cave, hosted by Dr. Andy Farrant. This field trip will examine the geology, geomorphology and hydrology of what is one of the finest, and most intensively studied caves in the country. No previous geological experience is necessary.  Due to access restrictions, numbers are limited to 5 in the first instance, but if there is sufficient demand, a second trip can be run on the same day (10 max). Participants will be on a first-come first-served basis.

This will be a 2-2.5 hour caving trip. Full protective caving clothing including helmet, boots and lights will be required for this trip. A CCC permit is also required (see http://www.cscc.org.uk/ for details), which can be arranged on the day. No novices or carbide. If you are interested please sign up on the pre-registraton form (https://doodle.com/poll/4zib83s43fb3fc59) before October 8th. BCRA have also booked 10 places at the Wessex hut for the night of Saturday 13th October. This may also be booked on the pre-registration form.
