Descent (189), April 2006


Daydream Believer

Benarat – where the caves are so large that surveying instruments fail and explorers yell: ‘Keeeeep gooooinnnnnng!’


Man of Mines

We say farewell to Mendip digger, author and mine photographer John Cornwell.


Brits Abroad

As cavers once again plan their overseas expeditions, here is the low-down on who is going where.


Persistence Pays

Pay Sank, a recent discovery on Ingleborough, was connected to Grange Rigg Pot in November 2005. Here, Dave Haigh covers the history of their exploration, which begins in the lost days of the 1940s.


Gear Review

Firefly 3 Slave

The rise of digital cameras has been a blessing – and a curse. The Firefly 3 can take care of at least one problem, avoiding early flashgun misfires.


The Search for Loxton Cavern

Lost to man since the 18th century, Loxton Cavern on Mendip was rediscovered by Nicks Harding and Richards. Following a rich vein of history, we explore Catcott’s cave.


The End of an Era

After thirty years, the Stephen Nunwick Memorial Lecture series draws to a close.


Viewpoint: A Miner’s Lot

UK collieries are disappearing. One miner tells of his life underground and what he sees in the industry’s future.


No Hairy Oiks Allowed

The Sport for All editorial in Descent (188) drew a range of comments – here’s the follow-up.


The Descent Caption Competition

With the largest number of prizes ever given away by Descent, here are the three winners and ten runners-up that made us laugh the most.
