5th December 2015

With Nick and Jake, later we were joined by Tom Chapman.

40 bags filled was the initial target but the later arrival of Tom upped the ante to 50 bags. Jake did the excavation, I was in the pot while Nick was on the hauling and shuttling until TC turned up to help out with the shuttle. Bags filled TC went to look at the rest of the cave while the rest of us started to get the bags and assorted rocks out to the surface where the bags were emptied. A jolly good session followed by some fine refreshments at the Hunter’s Lodge Inn – the Bath Ales Special Pale Ale was far too moreish!
