Peak District Caving News August 1998

Bagshawe Cavern

Diving progress in the Downstream Sump.

Report FromSimon Brooks.
Report Date15/08/1998.

Simon Brooks has continued his push into the downstream sump. A bit more ground was gained towards the resurgence before hyper-active silt deposits obliterated the vis completely. At that point the passage was very narrow so the diver reversed some 10m before turning round and making an exit.
