12 - 13th November sat - sun

saturday - Cuthberts Cave. Sporting trip, wet. Leader led, 6 people only. Can be hard going if folk want the full day trip. Technicality - Hard, entrance = sporting, wet and can be awkard and tightish if your on the larger side.

sunday - am trying to get leader for Shatter and Fern Cave systems. Both are leader led, 4 and 3 people only, trying for 2 trips into Fern.

If no leader for these, then thers lots of other stuff.

Will try and book Wessex.


Please note.

Although the above trips are leader led and specify numbers, there are numerous cave systems on the Mendips, feel free to come along and do Swildons Hole, through trip from Rods pot to Bath swallet, Goatchurch, Rhino Rift, Hunters Hole to practice SRT, GB Cave (nice) and if you want, I can try and get a trip down Upper Flood, tho you may be helping to carry dig buckets out!

Need to know numbers.

So far:

Tim W
Scotty
Me
Love it . . . :)

Accomodation booked at the Wessex for 7 people so we have the beds, now we just need the commitment. £5 per night booked for Friday 11th Nove and Saturday 12th Nove.

St Cuthberts is on. The trip can be tailored as required, so either a full-on trip of about 7 hrs OR a 3 hr trip can be had. Its up to those attending. Again, it is a pretty cave and leader only, so is generally not really bashed about, good for pics if you want them.

Wessex cave hut is just down the road from the Hunters pub so real ale is often served up. Les may join us pm for a pint or two - Les.....

Am waiting for Shatter and Fernhill - these are 2 easy and very beautiful cave systems, very short tho, they are leader trips only.

You dont have to do Cuthberts as said before, theres masses to do on the Mendips! Easy or hard, SRT or nonSRT. Join us if you dare!!!!!
Love it . . . :)

I would love to join you, but unfortunately that weekend I will be roughing it for a week on board a luxury liveaboard in the Red Sea. :evil: It's a tough life but someone has to do it.

I am sure you will have fun, just not as much a me :whistle:

I 'spect I could be persuaded to meet some people in the "Centre of the Universe" if it meant I had to drink beer...

Friday 11th November is Wells Carnival, an amazing sight if you've never seen it.

I'll second that - personally the more technical and more SRT the better :-) But obviously cater for the masses :-)

So let me get this straight, you want to come to Mendip to do some SRT? :silly:

We only have two SRT caves here (well 3 if you count Hunters Hole). The main reason to visit the Mendips is to go to The Centre of the Universe (Hunters Lodge Inn) and in your spare time between sessions you can get a cave or two in...

For the avoidance of doubt:
Yourkshire for SRT
Derbyshire for mud (and SRT)
Mendip for fine stream caves!
I'm a very busy person
