Descent (252), October 2016

Bilbao's Iron Caves

That long-gone miners once used caves to gain access to seams is well known, but nowhere is more spectacular than the mines and caves of Bilbao.

Exploring the World

Expedition cavers have again benefited from grants allocated by the Ghar Parau Foundation.

Cave Science

Solving a Climate Riddle

Finally, a solution to a decades-old scientific mystery at Devils Hole.

Finding the Lost River

Over the course of three dives, the bottom of the submerged shaft below Gaping Gill’s Lost River Chamber has at last been gained.

The Unique Status of Pen Park Hole

>Long recognised for its historical importance, Pen Park Hole has now gained SSSI status.

Caption Competition

Valvasor's Living Speleothems

Our ever-popular Caption Competition returns with a new (and rather strange) illustration.

Cover: Paul Dold in G.B. Cave. Photo: Steve Sharp

Back cover: Still life studies of a Premier carbide lamp and a candle with a survey and rope – seek out the fine detail, such as the reflection of winding gear from North Somerset’s Kilmersdon Colliery; the scrap of survey is based on a map by Harold Broderick drawn in 1908. Photos: Rob Carpenter
