Descent (101), August 1991

Shooting the White River

Descent (100) carried news that a major breakthrough had been made in Peak Cavern, almost at the end of the open season for this showcave. The explorers were left staring up a huge aven, whose deeply fluted walls soared out of sight. Here is what they found at the top!

The Swilly Hole Extension

Major extensions to Swilly Hole in Cumbria were made in 1990 – now, further work has revealed another series in the form of the NE Rift Series.

BCRC Incident Report

Some Northern Stories & Legends

Fourteen Years On, Wigmore Swallet ‘Goes’

The dig in Wigmore Swallet has been restarted; the end was merely described as ‘promising’ and unchanged since work began fourteen years previously. Now, there is at last a breakthrough into the unknown.

Diving in Drach

Mallorca’s Cuevas del Drach is a showcave and tourist magnet, but now British divers have for the first time been granted access to the underground lakes.
