Northern Explorers' Forum

A day of lectures from diggers and cave explorers from across the northern England regions.

Cave discovery and exploration is by no means an easy job these days, often involving lengthy digs and extreme persistence under the most challenging conditions. Despite this, every weekend, and often midweek too, groups head out to push the forefronts of exploration and knowledge across the north of England, either through digging, diving, surveying or hydrological testing.

The aim of course is always the same; to find or learn something new!

The Northern Explorers’ Forum is a one-day event to be held at Clapham Village Hall on Sunday 7th April 2019, 9am start. This event aims to bring together diggers and cave explorers from across the northern England regions as well as those interested in learning about ongoing explorations.

The event provides the opportunity to hear about all the latest projects, meet fellow diggers, share knowledge and insights and learn new techniques.

The day will consist of a series of lectures, spanning discoveries and ongoing efforts in several northern England caving areas, from the Three Peaks to the Three Counties, plus further afield including the Northern Dales and the North York Moors too.

A full timetable will be published closer to the time.

This is sure to be an interesting, informative, and maybe even inspiring day and it would be great to see the event well supported.

There is a small fee to attend to cover the costs of venue and equipment hire, refreshments and a simple lunch, which will be provided. Tickets should be purchased in advance, as the venue has a limited capacity and availability on the day cannot be guaranteed.
