Kathryn and I decided to stop off in Yorkshire very briefly for a quick trip on the way from her parents to mine. Haytime Hole is a quick and easy cave, although the climb down below the first pitch is collapsing quite badly. After another rifty pitch.climb there's a pleasant enough streamway, a couple of larger chambers and an oxbow enabling a little round trip to be done.
Coniston Copper Mines
Estimated time underground:
Another visit to Coniston, this time to the 'Back Strings' entrance: the upper entrance from which the through trip begins. We couldn't get very far though because we didn't have the right gear and it was all a bit on the rickety side. Some of the copper deposits were nice though.
