Vince, Nick, Tav, Jon, Mike and Duncan.

The usual amble up through the cave to the did. As expected, the drips along the passage were quite active.

The access point into the recent extension is slippery especially when trying to move kit up through the slot. All attempts to get the ladder through failed – an alternative solution will be sought!

Nick had bought a new, health and safety compliant, spade, so he was left in the dig to try it out. And because there was water in the hole Nick had started last session. The rest of us moved and emptied filled buckets, cleaned buckets, built walls and managed the spoil heap, tidied away slop and improved access into the extension. Tried to get some photos but there was so much activity going on the passage became very steamy.

There is much enthusiasm for this dig!

Digging in progress!
