2016 Meets List

The following trips are planned for 2016. In addition to these, there are many others arranged at short notice. The Meets List section of the web site is still broken, so it is being placed on the front page.

Rowter Pot. Derbyshire. SRT. Grade 3. Harder if you want to visit the end of the new  extensions.

Meets List for 2015.

The meets section of the web site is currently a bit broken, so I have placed the 2015 meets list here to give people a good idea of the regular meets we run. We usually have two organised trips a month and try to visit the main caving areas in England and Wales, though we do concentrate on our local areas of the Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales. In addition there are many other trips arranged, often at short notice, using our email mailing list.
