Agen Allwedd, Llangottock

Richard, a friend of Chris', had been caving a couple of times and was looking for a more tasty trip and so off to Aggy we went. Our plan was to do the Inner Circle route and so off we set. By the time we reached Coal Cellar passage it was clear that we would need to return so Richard could get his train back, so we fell short of our objective.

Now this in my opinion is a cracking cave with plenty of variety. The trip starts off by entering the lakes which are quite deep - up to your neck if you're lucky, and if you're not and you're short then you best learn to swim. Once you're through the lakes the rest of the cave is fairly straightforward: walking, climbing and of course the Long Crawl – which wasn’t too bad. The best part for me was the 'Green Canal'. This is a notorious tackle eater where more than one person from our club is known to have lost tackle. This obstacle is tackled by wearing an inner tube and swimming or bouncing your way off the walls to the far end - Great fun.
The adventure didn’t end after we had left the cave and were on our way home either, but that's a story for another day!
