Brickworks Dig, Penwyllt, South Wales

Another very successful digging weekend. On Saturday morning we constructed a single-bucket railway over the pool and in the afternoon we removed 75 buckets of spoil. On the Sunday we removed another 112 buckets of infill. We appear to have discovered a cross-rift with the passage we have been following, continuing ahead. Another weekend should confirm this. During the weekend we added 6 feet to the length of the cave.

Wet Sink, Forest of Dean

The round trip with an excursion to see the dead dogs, plus a diversion to go downstream to sump two - very nice keyhole stream passage just before the sump.
