I was on the Gower Peninsula this weekend with John Cooper (The Lost Caves of Gower Project). Others, though kept up the fight, here follows Tav’s report:

“Jake digging, Tav in the Tuck Shop, John ‘Tarantella’ Riley on the slope and Brockers on haul & shuttle.

23 bags of gravel and 10 loads of rocks were extracted to surface. The way on appeared to be a dead end alcove at first but a narrow continuation appeared late on in proceedings. Current state appears inconclusive. Consensus was that rather than attack the rift direct it would be good to zap the floor area above it first to widen the working area. Jake was going to try and send a photo, although obviously he’ll need assistance from Sam!

Hot and clegs so went to the pub.”
