Descent (56), January 1984

Northern Stream Passage

For the first time since the discovery of Maytime in 1974, there has been a major discovery in Agen Allwedd: it amounts to 800m of active streamway and has stared hundreds of cavers in the face for 26 years!

Ogof Hesp Alyn

Divers open over a mile of passage to establish Ogof Hesp Alyn as the major cave of North Wales.

Classic Caving: Otter Hole

Another classic caving trip described, complete with survey.

How USA set Record in Atlantida

Exploration in the Atlandtida Tunnel on Lanzarote.

Morocco ’83

A ‘just to make sure’ dive gives Cerburus CC members their main find in Kef Rouadi.

Schooling a Head in the Ways of Cwm Dwr

If you’re going to risk a career as a teacher, what better way than taking your headmaster caving – and Lionel Fanthorpe is the world’s most prolific science fiction author, to boot.


It’s down to the improper depths of Yorkshire for a preview of 1984’s prime new gear.
