After seeing the beautiful Square well in such a sorry state on a trip several weeks ago, we decided to pay a return visit staying the night and; draining, splitting the rock to managable chunks, removing the rubble and removing the graffiti all in one weekend.
With the help from some friendly locals we managed this in a matter of hours.

You left at 12.30, we went in at 1.30! Spent 6 hours in Browns, other than your footprints not a sign of crap anywhere!! Well done. That's the way the caving and mine exploring community can deal with the situation, get together and show we are better than those who seek to ruin such cracking places.
Unfortunately it might take longer to sort out Box, rubbish in every well. TThumbs Up
