March 17th - 24th 2018 Wales Week

Every year the club spends a week caving and walking in South Wales. We stay at a great cottage owned by South Wales Caving Club. The caving is a lot different to Yorkshire caves as they're mostly horizontal so it offers a real change from our usual area. There will be lots of caving, drinking, food and silly games!

The cottage is very cheap and we normally arrange communal cooking so it ends up being a cheap week away!

More detail will follow closer to the time so keep an eye on the diary and your email for updates.

Take a look at the South Wales Caving Club page to find out more about the cottage.
