Darfar Pot, Top Entrance


Call on Mr Hudson at Dale Farm for permission to approach along river bank from Wetton Mill. Alternatively, walk up dry river bed from Redhurst Bridge. Darfar Pot Upper Entrance is at top of steep path up gully from grate - beware 4.5m pitch round corner inside, with further two 4.5m pitches to floor of Glory Chamber. River can rise quickly - beware! The cave is very flood prone, and its the first cave to be affected if the river floods. Only descend below Glory Chamber in settled conditions. The sump backs up to river level.
