The Swildons Book has taken a group of many dedicated people around 8 or 9 years of work to get to the final product. :thumbsup:
Whilst it would be brilliant to see the same done for other caves, I very much doubt there are enough dedicated personel to make it happen for many caves.  :(

It would be good though.  8)
I'm a very busy person

The Limestone & Caves series got close in some respects. Well out of date now, of course.

Well, "adamski555" was suggesting an equivalent book to the new Swilsons one to be done for Yorkshire.
I'm not a complete idiot: some parts are missing!

My complete apologies. I read it properly the first time, then re-skimmed it quickly a long time later while I was trying to search for the threads on novice-friendly caves for the new thread on ukcaving. At that point our network fell over, and put a stop to everything for the next three days.
