Descent (109), December 1992


Flashpowder and Flaming Tripods

Having begun the story of his involvement with Yorkshire caving and the Craven PC in Descent (108), Len Cook continues with the story of his caving and photography in the late 1940s and ’50s.

The Porth Fatalities

With inquests into recent fatalities in Porth yr Ogof’s notorious resurgence pool, rumours about concerning how many deaths have occurred there. Chris Howes investigates the facts behind the stories, backed by a new underwater survey of the pool.

BCRA Conference ’92

We report in full on the 1992 Hidden Earth Conference held in Bradford.

The Lost Cave of Axbridge

Until the 1920s the hills above Axbridge were extensively mined for ochre. Following the Second World War disused workings lay dotted about the hillside, overgrown and merging with the greenery of Mendip. The miners were now old and their memories had faded, but all agreed: beneath Axbridge Hill lay a large cave. Has this been rediscovered?
