Hello For the Ecton Mine trip meet at large parking area on the road which runs parallel to the Manifold Trail. Grid Ref: sk096 582. See the location page of Ectonmine.org for more info. Be ready to go underground for 11am
Wear grotty clothes and something to change into afterwards as you may get damp/muddy. Last year we walked up a sough and got wet to the knees.
Your guide will be (dr) Andy Tickle. I think the cost is £5, but Andy has not confirmed yet. I am also expecting an indemnity form from Andy which you will need to bring along, I will forward this when it comes.
Last year we took all our own helmets and head torches which made things easier.
We have a supply of helmets, overalls and wellies and I can lend out my caving suit too. Let us know if you want to borrow anything.
Bring lunch , which can be eaten in the education room if wet.
Those going: Bill, DaveC, John S, Sue and Steve Warwick, Pat and Martin, Gordon, Mary, David and Linda, Andrew and Ali, Vanda, Hugh.
