There are regular club meets to suit all abilities, with something going on at least once a month. We have a number of ‘home meets’ based at Whitewalls, our club hut in Llangattock, plus a selection of ‘away meets’ to a variety of caving regions all around the country and sometimes abroad.
The calendar of events below shows club trips planned for 2023, and is updated throughout the year. Other trips also happen on an ad-hoc basis, so check out the members’ Facebook page and message board to see what else is going on.Latest Trip Reports and Photos
