Ogof Llyn Parc, North Wales

First of all I have to congratulate Heather for arranging this trip and say a special thanks to the lads from NWCC for manning the winch as with out them this trip wouldn't of been possible. The cave is entered via a 300 foot shaft for which we were all attached to a winch line (one at a time) to make it easier and quicker to descend. The cave itself is actually accessed via a mined level which has broken into natural passage and this is where the best bits are. There are plenty of formations for which Brendan got has camera out, and photographed anything that stayed still long enough. There's a stream way, a small amount of crawling, a few short climbs, a bit of mud to crawl through and roll about in, but best of all lots of fun, and to be honest no matter what I say it wont do this cave justice. I think I can say without contradiction that all of us enjoyed Lynn Parc.

Cwm Dwr, Penwyllt, South Wales

A trip to explore Upper Piccadilly. We still need to go back as we didn't explore all of the passages. Brendan couldn't resist taking some photos at the Piccadilly waterfall on the way out.

Tooth Cave, Gower

A trip with SWCC on a very wet day. Turned around before we hit the main streamway, as this is a very flood prone cave.
