21st April

Report by Tav:

Dunc, Tav, Jake, Nick 

Following last weeks efforts, the team arrived at the dig face fully expecting to be greeted with a puddle of water. And we were not disappointed! With Dunc digging, Tav on the perch, Jake hauling and Nick disposing, the team set about removing the puddle, followed by 30 buckets of slop/mud. By close of play a ‘solid’ floor of compacted material had been reached with water welling up through the cracks. The only viable option left seems to be back towards the entrance and one more session should be enough to decide whether or not this particular passage is still worth pursuing.”
