Old Caving Surveys and Posters needed
« on: February 28, 2019, 01:30:16 pm »
Hello all,

Old or new Cave Surveys, Cave Posters, old or unwanted OS maps, any cave/climbing/walking related prints etc etc

As some of ye might know Steph (Irish), Paul Mackrill (Nicola ph holder, Diva Diver lol) and Mike B (tall one) bought Yorkshire Dales Guides last year, a caving activity centre and provider outside Settle.

We have been renovating the place on a dime and the generosity of friends support and it's now coming time to do the cosmetic part of the renovations.

We want to wallpaper/decorate our walls with Cave Surveys, Cave Posters, old or unwanted OS maps etc etc.

Can you donate any old cave/climbing/walking related prints that you have.
It can include the likes of pictures from old descents, speleo calendars, ripped up surveys.
It doesn't matter if its imperfect or ripped as some of it will end up in a paper mache wallpaper anyhow.

If you have any could you either deliver it to us at our Activity Barn in Stainforth - http://www.yorkshiredalesguides.co.uk/about-us/find-us/
Our place in Settle by the Weir or any Dales based caving club your visiting.

We would be so incredibly grateful. Thanks a mil
Steph

Do you still need more surveys? - I've got the previous UFD survey and a B&W swildons...
It's unbelievable what people are willing to do in the name of conformity
