Hidden Earth 2023
Forest of Dean Round Up
45 minute Lecture|Paul Taylor
The Forest of Dean is not a large caving area and in fact in many respects when compared visually to other caving areas in the country its landscape does not even look like a caving area. Yet it contains the Tenth Longest Cave in the UK Wet Sink (Slaughter Stream Cave) and many others to go with it. Digging has played a significant part right from the very beginning to discover these caves and extend them. Work on this is continuing along with a variety of scientific projects. Such as water tracing, geological, surveying and archeological. There is much to report on from the period since the last Hidden Earth Conference. Work is currently underway to try and establish a 5KM round trip in one cave and to push on beyond the known extend of another. All of which will without a doubt change the Forest Caving Map.
