The entrance to Yellow Gill Pot
The entrance to Yellow Gill Pot
In 1983 a friend and I spent many weekends excavating a way into a (then unexplored) cave system which eventually proved to be about 200m in length and some 15m deep. Entry required much hammering away with a lump hammer and several desperately tight squeezes and acute bends. Although not big by any stretch of the imagination it was a highlight of my caving career as ours were the first lights ever to break that darkness. Today, the entrance is blocked by flood debris but I pulled out a few loose cobbles and reckoned that it could be re-opened fairly easily. We also spent time investigating sinks higher up the gill which we thought held greater potential for significant discoveries.
