Riverside Sink


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. There is a filter grate on Darfar Pot river entrance, & lid on Riverside Swallet; these should be replaced. Darfar Pot Upper Entrance is at top of steep path up gully from grate - beware 5m pitch round corner inside, with further two 5m pitches to floor of Glory Chamber.


River can rise quickly - beware!
