Beneath Three Lamps - Raven's Well
A short UrbEx and cache close to central Bristol @JonnyC: Having been on the to do list for a while, we applied the 'book a date' methodology to make this trip happen, so de-stressing from work over a quick Italian we prepared ourselves for the adventure ahead, and debated the relative comfort of approaching a subterranean trip in the city as opposed to the countryside.

After a few expletives and raw knuckles the gate was opened and we headed inside for the first crawl to the log book, Mark took ...
Slow stroll to sump one - Swildon's Hole
A quick stroll to sump one via the short dry after a damp day on Mendip @JonnyC: Took the opportunity to meet up with RM for a quick trip through the short dry to sump one and back, a little shocked by my fitness levels as stopped a number of times to catch my breath, a lesson is to be learned from this. Nice catch up.
