Descent (248), February 2016

Showcase

The thrill of leaving the surface for an underground world is captured by Neil Silverwood’s image shot in New Zealand.

The Marros Enigma

A new cave has been explored in West Wales – learn the story of Ogof Marros.

Langcliffe Silver

Langcliffe Pot sees infrequent visits, but Simon Wilson considers it well worth a trip and has installed a set of new anchors.
