F A Q's:
Q. Q, When can I go caving?
A. Let us know when you wish to go, and we will try to stick to your prefered date.
Q. How many can go?
A. From 1 Person to 16 people.
Q. Who can participate?
A. Individuals, friends, sports clubs, groups, corporate teams etc. Our sessions have been enjoyed by persons of average fitness. The caves we use allow a choice of routes and obstacles that can be varied according to the abilities of the group. (The sessions are not ideal for anyone who is severely claustrophobic, very overweight and physically unfit, or suffers from a serious medical condition).
Q. What do i need to bring on your trip?
A. Comfortable, loose fitting clothes, that you do not mind getting slightly dirty. Bring at least two warm layers for your upper body. An old pair of gardening cloves will save your nails from damage. Cotton and denim are not recommended as they do not retain warmth when wet. Ideal clothing would be tracksuit trousers, thermal vest and fleece or woollen sweater.
A. Suitable footwear in caves is very important as floors can be slippery and some climbing is involved. We recommend Wellington Boots with a snug fit and a good tread. (Walking boots, work boots or army boots can be used but they do not grip well on smooth surfaces). No trainers please. Please remember to bring a towel and a complete change of clothes.
Q. What equipment is supplied?
A. We provide all essential specialist caving equipment. This includes:- a modern comfortable caving helmet, a bright reliable lamp (made by Petzl), a cavers belt and a water resistant caving over suit. For some caves we provide Knee pads.
Q. What if I am the most unfit of the group, and get scared?
A. We can bypass harder parts of the caves, and give hands on help. Fear of the unknown is very normal.
Q. What if I am the fittest person In the group and feel very confident?
A. We can (and will) make it very tough.
Q. Can the wet cave flood, and we all die, (I have seen the Film Sanctum).
A. The parts of the cave we use have been very carefully chosen, and been used safely hundreds of times. You may get wet, but will not die.
Q. Will we see any fossils?
