Sunday was a visit to a  cave which was new to all 3 of us, been on my radar a while though since Topcat had recommended it, everyone else we spoke to had never heard of it. Haytime Hole was quickly found and I crawled into the entrance to check it was the correct cave. I really thought Ros was joking when she said loads of cavers were walking up. Sure enough a party of 9 from the  CPC arrived to ladder it with some novices! We shot in before them and had a jolly good 2 1/2 hours of caving, covered all the cave bar one dry oxbow passage which had a bit of a Craven people jam in it. The flat out wet crawl to the sump required a bit of excavation for me to fit through but is well worth it to see the formations. Not all of it is suitable for the larger caver and some bits are a bit on the loose side.
Ros, Dave and Stu.

A small world indeed. Couldn't believe today. Positively no-one visits Haytime Hole ever! Good to see you down there!

Glad you enjoyed it!  There is a passage off the dry oxbow which leads via a climb into a high level rift.  It gets a bit committing after a while and so I have not pushed it to the end.  Yet.
Was the rope still in Helms Deep?    I've been up this but it doesn't seem to go anywhere, unless a digger has been active meantime.

Rope still in place, looking even more dodgy than last time! Last comment for Stu, Dave and Ros. Did anyone lose a headtorch? I think someone picked it up and brought it out.

Nice looking piece of rope still in up to the dig, didn't have any gear with us to go up it though.
 The headtorch is not mine, have messaged Dave to ask them if they lost one.
Good little trip, thanks TC for the heads up.
Hope your group enjoyed it.

Thanks for this, Dave. Maybe Haytime Hole is becoming more popular. Rightly so, good trip. Hope you enjoyed it!

One of your groups blue tackle bags is now famous - uploaded a couple of pics of the entrance to the CNCC site.

About

There are many club organised caving weekends, with a mixture of easy and difficult caving.  Over the past few years we have given lots of people the opportunity to experience caving with our "Try Caving" events.  These are quite popular and quite a few people have subsequently joined the club. We have YSS members caving most weekends so it is easy for new cavers to tag onto the easier caving trips and find people to help with more training.
