Caves of the Peak District (Barker and Beck)

I refer to the above book a lot, but it doesn't have an index...so I created one on Google Sheets.

Feel free to share the link.

Excellent and many thanks.

I'll print it off and stick it in the back of my copy where the index should have been!

There is also an Index available via a link on https://www.thedca.org.uk/publications/cotpd
I'm not a complete idiot: some parts are missing!

I keep trying to refer to that index but the person that put it together seems to have a tenuous grasp on the alphabet. I'm guessing its supposed to be printed (double sided) and leafed together? While im ranting which tit decided to make a guidebook without an index?

Authors listed in the title of this thread. I hope you are thus inspired to contribute to caving in Derbyshire as much as they did

Seconded. Having had the privilege of Mr Beck’s company on a fair number of occasions, I can only hope that some of your compatriots in the TSG put you right on your unfortunate use of the ‘t’ word.

Sorry, I maybe could have chosen better words. I was under the assumption that it was the publisher that didn't add it.

my grasp of the alphabet is fine.

It is, as you seem to have worked out, meant to be printed as a booklet

Tseralo, please be aware caving is a small world, I've put my foot in it a few times like admitting to Pirating Easegill and then my first club, York uni, who had nothing to do with the trip having to attend a meeting to explain why they had pirated a cave. Despite all three people being from a club which was not York at the time...
 Best to make an error like that if there's a story to tell after ;)


You don't really need an index...

If you use the cave registry https://registry.thedca.org.uk/registrysearch.php

The cave registry tells you which region each cave is in. For example if you search for peak, then you find out that Peak Cavern is in Castleton and Peak Dale cave is in Wormhill.
https://registry.thedca.org.uk/namesearch.php?name=peak

From this, you can then sift through the book (alphabetically) to first find the region, and then find the cave your looking for.
 An online search is far more useful. If you only remembered that the cave had a colour in the name, then you could spend all day looking through an index for it, but you could search for the colour using the search facility.

Looks like we have a volunteer who can do a better job of producing the next copy ?---

Loads of mines are not on the list. I think only those mines that either enter natural cave or have naturally formed sections modified by mining activity are included in the book.   It would be a much thicker book of all the mine adits/shafts were included....

I think that depends on which part of the Peak District you're looking at. It's probably true of the Castleton catchment but it certainly isn't true of South Derwent or Lathkill, for example.

For the record, we realised, once it had been printed, that a general index has not been included in the latest edition of CoPD.  This was an oversight by the editors because all previous editions of the book had been in alphabetical order of cave names throughout (i.e. no matter where they were located), with the exception of the most recent edition predating this latest one, which was organised in areas.

A DCA member very kindly produced a cave name index for us within a couple of weeks, which I ran off as a 12-page A5 booklet (as was intended when he did it), and all copies sold direct by DCA have had this index tucked into the back of them.  It wasn't practical to do this for copies sold via commercial outlets but I have copies of the index ready printed if anyone wants one. 

If you PM me with your contact details, I can either drop a printed one in the post to you or I can email you the pdf so you can print it yourself.

Tseralo, the decision not to include an index was not that of John and myself. I'm assuming that you've written more on the subject of Derbyshire Caving than the mere 100.000 words I've contributed to the subject otherwise you wouldn't be so quick to be critical. It's a bit of a letdown when a member of a once lauded club that you were once chairman of calls you a "Tit".

Worry not Iain, there are plenty of us out here who have been involved in guidebook writing and related work - and who therefore know just how much commitment is needed to bring such projects to fruition. I think the most recent edition of COPD which you and the late JSB spent so much time on for our benefit is quite magnificent. It's an indispensable volume for the serious Peak District caver; there are very many of us who really appreciate your efforts and are extremely grateful.  Thank you.   :thumbsup:

Lack of an index gives you more excuses to browse through this excellent tome.

Surely that must be abridged. One could write 100,000 words on the delights of Carlswark alone

Delights of Carlswark? With apologies to the ghost of Wilfred Owen....

Bent double, like silly beggars under tacklesacks,
Scrape-kneed, coughing like hags, we crawled through sludge,
Till on the sharp-edged stones we turned our backs,
And towards our distant pint began to trudge.
Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots,
But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind;
Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
Of bad guffs dropping softly behind.
Dirty old mines need love too....

I liked COPD so much I bought 2 copies!  :ang:

I really should have got JSB to sign one before he passed away though.... :'(
