Natural vertical rift cave (50m deep) on Camm Rake discovered in Backdale Quarry, January 2017 by Michael Campbell, Martyn Grayson and Antonio Llufriu - subsequently explored and surveyed to conclusion by members of C9C shortly afterwards. The cave was sadly backfilled as part of the quarry restoration scheme shortly after discovery.
