The Craven Pothole Club runs caving meets once or twice a month. These are publicised via the meets card and on this web site and inform cavers of the type of cave, how it will be rigged, either on ladder or SRT (Single Rope Technique), and its difficulty. We arrange novice meets to allow newcomers to experience the underground world with the knowledge that they are being led by experienced cavers.
Club members regularly arrange extra trips either to go caving, including “digging” to look for new caves, walking, skiing, cycling (on and off-road), mountaineering, climbing, open-water and cave diving. We use camping facilities and bunk-houses all over the country to enable these activities and a certain amount of after activity suppin’ goes on.
In addition to the Club’s published caving diary, we have walking and cycling meets in The Yorkshire Dales, The Lake District, Scotland and Wales. We encourage participation at every level including the families of our members.
Expeditions are arranged to enable members to cave worldwide. The most recent trips have been to China, New Zealand, France and Spain, to explore known caves and search for new ones. Previously members have organised or participated in caving expeditions to Iran, Ecuador, New Guinea, New Britain, Borneo, Morocco, Canada, the USA and many parts of Europe.
