Charterhouse Caving Events Week

Monday 12th - Friday 16th December

In conjunction with local cavers Charterhouse is proud to present a week of caving events and keynote speakers to celebrate this local way of life.

Mendip is nationally important for its tradition of underground exploration and the area has a rich history of caving endeavours. The pioneering spirit continues today with local cavers pushing forward the frontiers of this fascinating sport in the depths of the Mendip countryside.

Each evening they  will be hosting a caving related talk and presentation.

Exercise will take place in parties of 6 at intervals throughout the morning (and afternoon as numbers dictate) and will involve many aspects relating to cave rescue, including surface procedures, first aid, casualty care, hot air kits/entonox/oxygen, stretchers, communications, vertical hauling and more.
There will be a debrief in the Hunters Lodge at 8pm.

Checkout out our new strippable model here to see exactly what’s under those outer layers. Navigate to it from the Caving menu item.
