Editor: Robin Gray

Here at last is No 2. Sorry it’s so late but I have been held up over a long article which as you will see is still not here.  I am assured it will be ready for number 3.

I hope you like the new look 1985 cover, as indeed I hope you will like the new look Belfry.  As this is being typed improvements are taking place and the work looks most impressive.

The Easter meet in South Wales suffered somewhat from the almost constant drizzle but some caving was done and much ale consumed.  Those who were there for Friday morning had a splendid trip in Craig a Ffynnon, while Saturday saw trips into OFD and a BEC doing it to excess trip into Agen Allwedd.   High water in the caves prevented long trips in Aggy and Dan-yr-Ogof but a large number of cavers got under ground by visiting Big Pit Mining Museum.

At present plans are being made to lay air pipes down to sump 2 in Cuthbert’s in order to have yet another go at getting the water low enough.  Fingers crossed for the big push.

Many thanks to those who have sent in articles for the BB.  However, we still need more!  Can I remind older members that articles which look back to days of the BEC gone by are most welcome in this our 50th year.

Last some articles to look forward to……..more from the pen of Bolt talking of his adventures in Alaska and a couple of dig reports…………new finds in Swildons and of course Eastwater.

Good Caving, Robin
