(Publishers description) A comprehensive guide to the caves of northern England. Sadly for many years this series of guidebooks to the Caves of the North of England has been out of print. During this time many new caves have been discovered and known caves significantly extended, for example the connecting of Lost Johns’ Cave to Notts II in 2011 making the final connection to realise the Three Counties System.

The new series of Northern Caves documents these new discoveries along with all of the known cave passage in the North of England. Northern Caves will continue to be first and foremost ‘a guide to the caves’ and not a ‘how-to-do-it’ guide to the various caving activities which might be undertaken in those caves. Those new to these books may initially struggle with using the information as it can take some time to become accustomed to the style in which it is written. There have also been significant changes in the techniques used by cavers, especially in respect of descending vertical drops, where SRT is now more common than ladder and line. Therefore the new Northern Caves has been updated to provide SRT information where it is available.

We have tried to ensure that all information is correct and accurate at the time of publication. However over time, inaccuracies will develop as rigging will change, boulders move and new discoveries are made a website has been set up Detailed description will include entrance photo, alias, GPS location, elevation, length, depth, grade, exploration history, warnings, rock type at entrance, access and hydrology.

In addition, the website provides access to a collection of searchable bibliographical references that relate to original exploration of the caves covered by these guides.
