We are an active and friendly caving club that welcomes both new and experienced cavers. Despite our name, we are mainly a caving club, though some members do climb as well. We are mostly based in Cheshire and Staffordshire, but some members live further away. Our caving and mine exploration takes place locally in the Peak District and Yorkshire Dales and further afield in this country and abroad.

If you are totally new to caving and want to know what it is all about, then read What We Do and Why We Do It.
Keyboards have been pounded. Ones and zeros have been wrangled and chivied in to place. The new club web site has gone live. We hope you enjoy it.
Read about our first organised trip of 2019. Oxlow Cavern in the Peak District.
We can arrange supervised caving trips for individuals, or for small groups, with all equipment provided. Our ability to do this was initially funded through a National Lottery grant. If you are interested, then please get in touch.

Our guidebook covers all of the worthwhile SRT trips in the Peak District. Profits from the guides were used initially to fund the eco-hanger bolting project. Since its completion sizable donations have been made to Derbyshire Cave Rescue Organisation.
The guide is available from Starless River, Caving Supplies, or Inglesport.
As a club we aim to minimise the impact we have on the cave environment by following the BCA Caving Conservation Code
As a club, Crewe Climbing & Potholing Club (C.C.P.C.) recognizes that the activities undertaken by Club Members may involve a danger of personal injury or death. As participants in such activities, all adult Members of C.C.P.C. (including Temporary Members) must be aware of, and accept, these risks, and must be responsible for their own actions, and for their own safety. [CCPC Risk Statement. 01-01-2015]
