Where am I? DERBYSHIRE CAVING CLUB - HOME PAGE
Anton has been busy and set up dates for a load of meets, at least one a month. Have a look at the list (click the link below the news).
I have updated the Rogues Gallery and there are now over 100 pictures. I am sure someone will spot some omissions so if you do, let me know and send me a decent picture to add to it. I have included a number of ex-members including some who have sadly passed on to the great white cave in the sky. The gallery can be seen on the open club pages at this link.
CAVE CONSERVATION CODE
The British Caving Association has published a cave conservation code in conjuction with Natural England and the British Cave Research Association. This can be dowloaded from our site where it will be found on the cave conservation page. All members are encouraged to read it.
