Bradwell Parish Cave

Entrance of Bradwell Parish Cave


The owner of Bradwell Parish Quarry has requested that people caving in Bradwell Parish Cave don't create or leave any mess and please don't cut down any trees, however small. He would also like cavers to contact (text is fine) (reveal) before caving there so that he knows who's about. Permission will normally be given.

Please approach by walking up the road, rather than using the informal path that runs from the outskirts of Bradwell village and through private land.

This site is part of the DCA SSSI Conservation Monitoring Scheme.
See the DCA website for competition details.
