The Bristol Exploration Club, The Belfry, Wells Road, Priddy, Wells, Somerset.
Editor: Dave Turner

My apologies for the delay in this BB - pressure of work and all that.  I am prepared to carry on but feel the Club would be better served if someone, with more time took over as editor.  I would be only too pleased to assist them if anyone fancies a turn.

Cuthbert’s Photos

If any members have any photos (including slides) of St. Cuthbert’s which they think may be suitable for the Cuthbert’s report can they let Barry Wilton see them.  He needs over a hundred photographs and will obviously take great care of anything lent.  Historical photos etc are all needed together with photos of digs and formations etc.

Thanks to Jim & Mary Rand for the etched glass in the Belfry. front door.

The Quest for the Rusty Tankard, was won by the BEC by devious means as most members are aware.
