The BEC maintains a reciprocal rights scheme with a number of clubs around the country. At present this is the list of clubs who we have rights with:
- Bradford Pothole Club
- Craven Pothole Club
- Grampian Speleological Group
- South Wales Caving Club
- Yorkshire Subterranean Society
- Red Rose Cave and Pothole Club
If you are planning on staying at one of these clubs you should ensure that you book in advance of your visit and avoid members only weekends. Most clubs now have online diaries and booking systems which you should take advantage of.
These arrangements enable you to pay members’ rates for use of facilities. No other rights or privileges are conferred by these arrangements. In particular, we remind you that reciprocal rights do not bring any access to caves managed by these clubs. The normal permit systems have to be followed. Additionally, you should check in advance about access to hut keys if required.
