COVID-19 Update for novices.
Novice cavers often require close proximity for checking they have knots and equipment safely on. They may also need close proximity help on tricky climbs or squeezes. Because of this we feel that we cannot safely take novices at the moment.
Please register interest (at the bottom of this page) and we will kep you in touch with developments.
Are there any exclusions?
Are There Any Age Restrictions?
The minimum age is 16
There is no upper age limit!
When Do You Go?
There are opportunities to try caving on midweek and weekend novice trips
What Cave Will We Do?
If you have never been before we will take you down a good starter cave like Goatchurch Cavern which can take 2 to 3 hours
This is a dry cave with every size of passage for you to try
We want you to enjoy the experience and come again, so we will take things at your pace, and go down passages where you feel comfortable
Will I Need Caving Gear?
If you have no gear, thats fine, we will hire you:
An LED caving lamp
We charge £15 for the gear hire, but this is refundable against the membership fee of £52 if you decide to join the club
What Do I Need To Bring?
You will need to provide:
Wellingtons (not because its wet, but wellies are standard caving footwear)
Old jeans or jogging bottoms
