Explore underground Britain and get involved with caving and mine exploration. Britain has thousands of underground spaces just waiting to be explored! The best and safest way to find our more is to join a caving club and get to know the ropes..
Devon has two major caving groups which welcome new members at any experience level. Both groups explore caves and mines within the Devon and Cornwall area and even further afield. You can find out more about the Plymouth Caving Group or Devon Spelaeological Society by visiting their websites.
Alternatively, if you're not Devon based check out the British Caving Association website to find your local club.
