Descent (230), February 2013

A Midge-infested, Draughtless No-hoper ...

Another new cave has been dug open on Leck Fell, the result of a dig in a depression that seemed – to some, at times – a lost cause. Yet Shep Pot lay waiting below.

We Should Have Gone to Aygill

It’s one of the problems with a new discovery – it has lain for millennia, untouched and balancing its boulders, waiting for the unwary to find it, waiting to fight back.

The Man Who Followed the Water

We say farewell to Bill Gascoine, a chemist who turned hydrologist to unravel the secrets of South Wales.

More Than Just Another Party

CHECC’s latest gathering shows how the group’s stature has matured.

Flights of Fancy

A Drone for Cavers

In the first of two allied articles, Juan Corrin takes us underground in full control of a lightweight flying camera. What is at the top of that climb? Send in the drones.

The Hollow Hill of Gomantong

Photographing remote regions is one use of a caving drone, but why not go one stage further and produce a 3D survey as well?
