Over the water

Hi all, News from a silent partner Over the water and under the Hill. Mud Inlet, Wretched Rabbit. 09/05/05 Sam Lieberman (+ Andy Whitney as backup). Pushed as far as I could go in this esoteric bit of the upper entrance series. Starts cleanwashed, then dry gravel and sand, then mud, then more mud, then lots of mud, twigs, shimps and a few puddles all with 6 inches of headroom (i.e room for your head) Ended up making mud angels … Read More

After a recent surveying trip with Hugh and Ray Duffy the possibilities of a connection between Spiral Staircase and Wretched Rabbit were highlighted. On Wednesday 24th August Ruth, Duncan Jones and myself began digging in Wretched Rabbit in a likely looking alcove just below the thigh high inlet about 20m beyond the Great Rift. We hit bedrock and decided to abandon this and explored the upper passeges of Wretched Rabbit. The following Wednesday Ruth, Brian Ward and myself attacked the … Read More

Spiral Staircase

Sorry Simon , But when Steve Pickles & I were digging the Hole in the Roof of S.S. ,Steve slid down the Big Rift so fast , he broke a shin bone upon landing . Brave lad limped all the way back to Bull Pot. I agree though , I think you’re on a winner there. Cheers Jim Newton.

We were ready for the Easegill clean up but this seemed unlikely to happen so Ruth and I decided to visit Spiral Staircase and the dig Upstairs and Downstairs once again. At Inglesport we met a very tired Paul Windle who had been involved in an incident at Hammer Pot, but with the promise of just a bit of boulder proddling he agreed to come with us. Armed with a couple of proddling sticks and the boulder meister himself (Paul) … Read More

Wednesday 7th September The team was six strong, Ray, Sam, Dave, Brian, Ruth and myself. We decided to split into two teams, Brian, Dave and Ruth to head off to Spiral Staircase and continue proddling those boulders downstairs and Ray, Sam and me to vacuum upstairs. We left the farm carrying an assortment of wood and scaffolding to shore the crater. When we reached Wretched Rabbit we began lowering the wood down the rope climbs and Ray scurried off to … Read More

Upstairs and Downstairs the real breakthrough September 21st Richard Bilton Simon Jobling We met at farm with the intention of popping down to Spiral Staircase and clearing the rubble from downstairs, which some inconsiderate builders had left.

The Holey Land, 05/10/05 Sam, Ray & Andy W. Well true to form, last weeks efforts were washed away behind the shoring, however this appears to be just consolidation of the pile and cleaning out of the mud. So there was not too much to clear out from the bottom. Hampered by the fact that our freshly refurbished clamps had been stolen by THE SWIVEL CLAMP THIEF (Da-Dun Daaaaaaa, drum roll and all that, I wonder where they could have … Read More

Once Downstairs Simon cleared the rubble to allow enough room to get beneath the hole face up, and after squeezing, thrutching and inching … Read More

Dear mudminers, just a couple of bits of info……. My efforts at Previously Enjoyed Hole have resulted in the most likely eventuality, that is, a connection with Smokey Hole, via a pitch into the 2nd chamber. (through trip only done one way as yet),- virtually no natural passage found, just a 20 odd foot long capped crawl. Also, ….. dare I say this???…… the club battery (the long one- 2 batteries taped together), is completely useless. See you around, Johnny

Our call for more help resulted in Hamish Balfour turning up for a farewell trip,before leaving for New Zealand.This meant the bucket rope could be lengthened & we soon were 4 feet further down exposing an alcove.But we lost the draught! 4 days later we returned & after a chiselling epic ,the draught & hole appeared. Now we will have to shift the chisseled rocks out before we can continue.We will return.

Jim & Mark went down on14.9.06 to have a proddle with the BIG bar. It didn’t go in more thana foot before hitting bedrock.So it looks like back to the hammer & chisel.It was pouring down outside & not much drier inside, so we had a lookround to see where all the water was going to. Amazing the number of sinks there are around this hole. Talking about capping, Has Johnny gone walkabout, again?.

Hi, Sunday 01/10/06 Limerick Passage. Minor extension. Duffy and my good self went up for a ferret to see how much was missing from the existing survey. Right up the top end the passage branches and then each branch branches again. Going left first and then right through this lot, the passage soon turned into a flat out grovel over wet gravel. Pushing through past a cobble run in led to a desperate squeeze up past a large flake (visions … Read More

Ahead, bedding 2-3ft wide 6-10 inch high with mud floor eminated strong draft. Next visit, capping roof bedding should allow access and view ahead.

Ah… you can blame Dave for this one, since he mischievously named his dig ‘Tip Top’ in response to Simon and Hugh’s ‘Top Tip’ (just to confuse everyone), and we figured it would be rude not to add to the bafflement.
