Lost: Full tackle sack outside Alum Pot
« on: April 05, 2019, 06:16:56 pm »
Hey,

Packing kit for another trip today I noticed we (KUCC) are missing quite a bit of kit to build our usual haulage packs. Thinking back I think we may have left a fully packed tackle sack outside Alum pot's entrance.

If it's still there, it was left near the base of a small tree and close to the inside of the wall near the river crossing side of the perimeter.

If anyone has it I'm more than happy to confirm exactly what will be inside, it should all be red and yellow or red and yellow/green taped as KUCC kit too.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

We walked past there yesterday and one of our group thinks she saw it I personally did not.

the tackle sack was stashed so it would be obscured from view. I believe it's between a tree and the wall but maybe it's behind a large rock or some foliage.

Someone thinks it may have been placed in the exact location in this attachment but i'm pretty sure it was hidden somewhere along the wall. Thanks guys.k x

Had a good look around but didn't spot it I'm afraid.

Thank you very much for taking a look, chunky!

Seems like the bag is probably a goner, will get to work on begging our students' union for more money :lol:

Appreciate the help that everyone has put in either way, cheers.

Is there a chance it may have been moved to the University building area off Alum Pot Lane?

Just contacted someone who was staying there easter weekend and there was nothing obvious when they were there

Hi longjohn,

What do you think to this pulley? yours if you want it, with a few steel slightly off oval krabs.

A new fixe can be picked up for £18 from Starless river so might not be worth the hassle of posting.
Could try and tack on to the Mike Butcher post abour Caver Post dales to Mendips?
