Descent (247), December 2015

Changing Attitudes to Cleaning Caves

Rubbish, litter and unwanted kit ... and we cavers leave it rotting underground! It’s time for action.

Underground Turkey

Feast upon some fine photography shot during the Third International Meeting of Cave Photographers. If this whets your appetite for more sumptious images, the pair of issues covering the first two meetings are available as a set at a discount.

A Ripple Under Archways

After seven years of digging on Mendip, Home Close Hole has finally broken into the further reaches of Wigmore Swallet.

Meet the Mellops

Pigs go caving? Whatever next? Join the Mellops as they venture underground.

A Golden Age of Exploration

Martyn Farr has been lured back to continue cave diving in New Zealand, drawn by the current Golden Age of exploration.

Surveying OFD

After decades of work, Ogof Ffynnon Ddu’s new survey has been published ... and it reveals a new length and depth for this classic cave.

Gear Review

The Academy Cavers

For 2015 the annual Hidden Earth conference returned to Churchill Academy on Mendip, with great success.

Write it down!

Roy’s Recollections
