29th December 2016: with Nick, Tav and Duncan.

A steady trip up through Chamber 20, stopping for a while to point out the entry to 'Attila the Hun's Sardine Cannery' to DP so that he can add it to his survey at a later date.

At the dig, it was rather disappointing to find that it was full of water again. I can't remember when it rained but Tav seemed sure it was around the 23rd. On the way out we noted that the pool in the chamber was deeper and a trickle of water was coming from the solutional slot in the roof, filling the small side tube that was overflowing and trickling into the pool.

Hopefully, the weather will remain dry and the water will drain away so that we can resume digging next week.
