If you were allowed.

If we're allowing hypothetical/ nearly dug trips in the list, I don't think permission is an issue  ;D

After all, pretty much everything on the list is not allowed at the moment, except maybe Goatchurch  :down:

Which will be the most difficult to avoid contact in...

Long hole (not Great oones) & gough's old are already connected, but the link is gated to protect the bats (& their heating system).

Reservoir Hole via the top entrance.  The one the bats use.

Hasn't been found yet. They don't come in the most obvious direction.

  • Read's Cavern. In the dry entrance, down Zed Alley, out through Browne-Stewart and the Wet Entrance


I would not recommend exit through Browne-Stewart. It's not at all stable.

You can still just wander through the main chamber.

It's more of a hypothetical list than a recommendation for a trip. It seems rather unlikely that there will be a one-way system instigated for social distancing...

But yes, please read the guidebook before attempting any of the more or less far fetched ideas posted here  :)
