is all about excursions in the countryside including caving and digging trips, walks and thoughts.

1st June 2017: with Roz, Brockers, Nick, Tav and Duncan.

It was a fine evening, warm and sunny, there were grumbling's like "too nice to go underground". These were ignored and off we went.

At the dig, Brockers picked-up where he had left-off last week, the rest of us shifted and dispersed the spoil.

By the end of the session, some large boulders were beginning to appear, these will require 'capping' to reduce them to a manageable size and an interesting hole, to one-side was revealed. There is a lot of spoil to be moved before this can be fully investigated.

But now...it was time for the pub!
