Has anybody got any details of the break-through in Turbary Pot they would like to share?

Apparently a short climb down through a scaffolded shaft at the bottom of Turbary into the ongoing passage.

Is this beyond the Sumps or a different part of the Pot?
Sweet is the sound of the pouring rain,
And the stream that falls from hill to plain.

Doesn't sound like much news is forthcoming...

I imagine it connected fairly directly to the Turbary Inlet in Swinsto.  Certainly going to make a new through trip cutting out some of the Swinsto crawl.  Never been up the Turbary Inlet so don't know if that makes it any more desirable.  Fortunately it doesn't connect into 'Misery' the rather dismal passages explored by Martin Holroyd in the 90's.

Anyone know who was involved?

That's certainly what I inferred from Pie Muncher's original reply - straight scaffolded dig in McShea Chamber through the boulders into what was the end of Turbary Inlet. We'll have a look...

Should be a report in next Descent.

Well, Darren and Dave made a fine job of it. What impressed me was how tidy they have left the dig area. Having recently been in the Acrobat Pot series in Notts Pot, it's an example that some other cavers would do well to follow.

If it is new through trip then it renders one of my songs out of date...

'Are we human? Or re we cavers? I found the entrance and we pulled through.
And I'm on my knees looking for the exit...

F&$% it's turbary pot...'

At least people won't have to wait at the bottom

Perhaps Glen was just ahead of his time.
