CAVING IN DEVON

Devon has few caves but many mines.  As can be seen from the map, there is a small collection of caves in the limestone around Buckfastleigh.  The significant caves are Baker's Pit, Reed's Cave and Pridhamsleigh Cavern.  However, the best known is probably Kent's Cavern at Torquay which is a show cave with particular archaeological interest.  There is a Devon Speleological Society which is active in caves in the county and further afield in the UK and abroad and also the Plymouth Caving Group.
