The GOC Caving Group caters for cavers at all levels of skill. Activities range from international cave exploration and regular visits by members fully-trained in SRT (single rope technique) to the best caves in the UK to introductions to caving and caving techniques for the inexperienced.
The main locations for caving in Britain are North Yorkshire and the north-eastern corner of Lancashire, South Wales, the Peak District, and the Mendips. As a member of the National Caving Association, the Group is able to get permits for caves in all of these areas. There are weekend caving meets about every six weeks.
We have access to facilities for indoor training in single rope technique, and can arrange sessions for members of the group to learn or to improve their skills in a comfortable environment, complete with café.
If you want to see what lies beyond the parts of Dan-yr-Ogof open to the public, to visit Otter Hole - guarded by a tidal sump beneath Chepstow race-course, to explore the Lancaster-Easegill System - Britain's most extensive cave system, to abseil into Titan Shaft - Britain's biggest underground shaft, or to see many other underground wonders, get in touch with GOC Caving Group.
