Welcome to the Wessex Cave Club

I hope you find this site fun and informative. I have tried to include as much info as I can and
be as up to date as possible with club goings on both on mendip and else where.
We are a very active caving club with over 250 members mostly based in the U.K
and a few that are based abroad.We have our club head quarters in the heart of the Mendip hills
in a little village called Priddy this is near Wells in Somerset. The caving club hut is open to all caver's
and those non members who would like to come along with caving friends and have a go.




The Wessex Cave Club has published the book : 'Swildons' Hole - A Hundred Years of Exploration'. This gives a history of exploration of the cave to date, together with a detailed description of the cave passages and features, with an explanation of its geology and hydrology. Many have ‘reserved' a copy and demand is high. There will only be one print run so copies are limited - when they're gone, they're gone. Cost £25 + P&P
