Caving & Abseiling Day

This full day caving and abseiling
is full of adventure and challenge. There are two possible caves, and two possible abseiling venues.   For beginners to both activities we recommend both the caving and abseiling to be done at Burrington Combe.  Goatchurch Cavern at Burrington is the perfect introductory cave, ideal for both adults and children.  The abseiling in Burrington Combe is also suitable for beginners of any age.  Another advantage of this combination is that we stay in one location for the entire day, with both public toilets and the Burrington Inn (good food, reasonably priced) conveniently close by.   

The alternative venues are Swildon's Hole, the famous wet cave system near at Priddy, and Split Rock, near Wells, which features a sheer 25 metre wall!
