If you've never had a trip down Gaping Gill, you've really missed something. It's the largest cave in Britain and can only be entered (other than by experts) via a bosun's chair on a winch.


Definitely an experience for children between eight and eighty!


The Spring Bank entry is organised by Bradford Potholing Club. There is one in August organised by Craven Potholing Club.

After getting stuck for 5-10 mins in a thing called the Postbox in a cave in the Brecon Beacons, I have to say my caving days are behind me!

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Vaguely remember going down there in the past.


I certainly remember going down Long Churn cave and squeezing through the cheese press. Don't think I'd get through there these days without shedding a pound or two.

Never made it to Gaping Ghyll but those of you who have met me will find it astonishing that I made it through the Cheese Press on numerous occasions... down to the Balcony, across the Greasy Slab  and right down to the bottom of Alum Pot.
