Caving - not a lot. It’s been very quiet on the hill recently.  Digs are still being dug and caves are still being visited but nothing unusual has occurred. The imminent arrival of the Cuthbert's report must mean that the Cuthbert's West or East End Series is about to be discovered.  (I think I know where to look!)

The above is a bit out of date since the big push in Cuthbert's is now on, volunteers welcome! The power cable and telephone from the Belfry to Sump 2 are in place and the electric pump was taken down on the 24th of August.  Pumping proceeded over the bank holiday weekend.

New discoveries have been made in Daren, some hundreds of feet between Spaderunner and Aggie. Someone might even write it up for me!

Please could I have more contributions for the BB.  I’ve only received four since February!
