Streaks Pot, Sat 11.3.17. Those attending: Mike Smith, Mark Gration, Ann Soulsby and Robin Stiffin Must have been on form today. I had that nervous apprehension feeling whilst looking forward (why was I looking forward?) to Streaks Pot. Having read through some descriptions I was possibly pondering my sanity. Anyway, met Mike , Mark and … More Streaks Pot Trip Report – 11 Mar 2017
Several old trip reports have just been added, all from Robin. Some going back to 2006! Happy reading. All available from Past Trip Reports menu by year.

Was just finishing his … More Hillocks Mine – Unofficial Trip- Sat 6Feb 17

Several had shown an interest but in the end three members attended the training. Actually one club member and two associate members, one of … More BASIC SRT TRAINING DAY -28 Jan 2017
You know when it is best to can the caving and pull up the duvet: strong winds and lots of snow. On just such a promising day, the intrepid five set out and found that only two of four cars could make it within 500m of the parking place for Titan. Fortunately Ade had a … More Titan Trip Report (14 Jan 2017)
