Henllan? Otherwise known as Ian Adams? But, to be far there are several members producing some good videos at the moment.

I'm Joel, and welcome!

Where are you from, have you caved before?

Thats the one!

Am from Wrexham, or I was last time I looked, hard to tell with all the snow!

Not caved before, but willing to try some easy stuff, Not keen on anything that involves tight spaces though!

Hi Ant,

Glad you found it to the webby ....

Dan ... found him watching you stuck in the Jingling pot vice :lol:

Ant, there are trips on every Thurs, some will be suitable for you and some might not be. There is a private members section which, sadly, you can't see unless you are a member but if you ask here we can tell you what the trip is if it is listed there instead of the public section. This Thursday there is a big trip down a 470 foot shaft with ropes and is not ideal for your first trip.

You can also email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and I can keep you up to date that way too.

Keep posting here - everyone is friendly and will welcome you ;)

Not as many as you might imagine (270) ... I don't make any effort at all to spam them. Folk watch or they don't.

Oddly, it has more views than the trip itself LOL

:P

yeh, i did spam post the link to both the trip and the vice, i'm just happy to be famous. oddly, i dont remember signing a release or receiving my fee.

I demand 3 cream egg's and a packet of chocolate pretzels or i'll pass my claim to one of those dodgey no win no fee solicitors.

Release was implied (and in any event was not yours to release).

As a club member (paid up) you have no fee conditions unless expressly conferred(and agreed) at the time of membership.

You would need a seriously dodgy lawyer to take your case on - so dodgy, you would be scammed for up front fees and you would see his 4rse as he fled with your dough ....

Unlucky :P

Thanks for the welcomes and the, unusual, discussion :silly:

This Thursdays trip does sound unsuitible for a complete beginner so, I'll certainly give that a miss!

I'm from Wrexham myself and when not working away i'm out Somewhere local most weeknights :-) You're welcome to come and join us :-) The UCET team are very accommodating when it comes to newbies, so youre heading the right way. Probably see you round soon I'm sure!

Hi Ant89, I'm Rob AKA Sweetie. I'm a fairly new member to UCET and have issues with ropes, ladders, tight spaces, getting wet, marmite and the dark, however everyone at UCET went out of their way to get me underground with them. After 3 weeks of finding excuses not to go, I finally ran out of excuses and ended up going to Hendre Spar Mine (Ian AKA Henllan on youtube has posted at least 2 videos of the spar mine to give you an idea)

It's a pretty easy mine to get started with and very cavernous inside so not many tight parts!

There are plenty of cool places without any tight parts. Do you drive?

Due to snow the original trip has changed and the new trip is ideal for newbies
