Grew up in Bathampton, so nice to see the caves and mines I spent a lot of my youth in represented!

One thing of note - The Devil's Cave is a lot larger than what is shown here: there is what appears to be a dead heading with a small window at the back, through which you drop down into much larger workings with cart tracks and other features. I can't say I've explored all of it, but it's pretty big after the squeeze.

I had no idea that devils cave had more to explore. It is a short walk from my house but I had never got round to properly exploring it because of all the graffiti and rubbish from the students. I will definatly be going and doing a full explore now after covid along with single way. Before lockdown I think I might have found another section of severn sisters on the other side of a large rock fall the the very back of the workings. I did not want to move anything to see if you could go futher as it was a very clautrophibic and was extremly unstable and looked like it was going to collapse any second.

I've just moved back to the area, temporarily living in Corsham.

Devils is quite a site bigger, haven't been through the lot yet. Tried to go to Singleways the other weekend in broad daylight, but didn't have the stones to walk across infront of the golfers into the trees!

Would be good to hook up and go for a nose around together perhaps?
