Report Date06/2003.

Vandalism in Carlswark Cavern

Report FromRalph Johnson.
Report Date06/2003.

Sadly I have to report an incredible amount of damage in Eyam Passage. Quite a large section of the calcite floor has been damaged and parts removed. There are peices the size of dinner plates scattered around the area. This is NOT accidental damage - the culprits must have gone in equiped with the necessary tools. It would appear that this vandalism has occured within the last few days.
