Good day to you all, just wanted to say hi. Total newbie to caving/potholing. I'm based in South Cumbria and interested in exploring mines and caves in the area and North Yorkshire. I did my first through trip yesterday paddy end to hospital level, Coniston copper mines and loved it. I'm still building my gear rack up at the minute. Been utilising some of my older climbing gear at present.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for local clubs or groups in my area please. Thank you Thumbs Up

Welcome Rob, the people to talk to about mine exploration in Cumbria are CATMHS - there are several members active on AN so I'm sure one of them can give you contact details.
