Fairy Quarry Through Trip

Jess had offered to play buxom bar maid for the Priddy folk festival this year, so I extended an offer out for a couple of trips in the Mendips followed by a couple of beers.
Keith, Chloe, Ian and Mark Burgess joined me on the Saturday for a through trip from Fairy to Hilliers.
Mr E brought his drone to take footage for his latest Dudley epic from the skies, and much fun was had messing around for the opening sequences.
A few stills below give a feel for what is to come, but I won’t give too much away here……’s gonna be awesome!
We……eventually dropped in through the Fairy cave entrance and made our way through the various crawls to the aqueous connection to squeeze in to Hilliers.
Upper Grotto. We continued on through the connection to Cambridge grotto, Brenda’s Chamber and through Suicide Choke to the Red Room. Here I spent a little time playing with my new Macro lens before we headed back out via Tar Hall and the Entrance rift. As we climbed out Keith Spotted some rather large Cave Spiders for me, so out the Macro came again!
A fun trip which looks to have made some great video. I look forward to seeing the finished results!
