PostSubject: Caerwys Caves   Sun 22 Mar 2009, 5:25 am

Location
SJ 124 731

Directions
1st Way
Go to the Nine of Clubs golf course and take the public footpath through the course and into the woods on the opposite side. Take the path down into the woods and head towards the horseshoe lower down. At the horse shoe, take the track towards the caravan park, the caves are right there (and one behind you just around the back of the horseshoe.

2nd Way
Go to the caravan park at Caerways (north) and take the track straight through and into the woodland behind. The caves are just before you reach the horseshoe.

Access
Permission is required from the caravan site although I think the 4th cave may be outside their land. All caves are on a public footpath.

Suggested Equipment
None

Length
Unknown

Flood risk
None known

Cave Attributes

Phreatic in nature, dry and now home to spiders.

Description

A number of small caves on both sides of the public footpath. The first cave is probably the largest (nearest the caravan site) and leads into a small chamber which then continues with a squeeze and becomes too tight to carry on.

The 2nd cave has a reasonable sized entrance (which is low) and has litter strewn inside. It quickly chokes inside.

The 3rd cave I can’t remember much about.

The 4th cave is a flat out crawl which appears to go on and on without becoming narrower. The vast amount of spiders in this somewhat enclosed space is a huge deterrent to entry.

Unexplored Passages
The flat out spider crawl remains uninvestigated as well as the chocked areas of the caves.

Digs
Potentially, at least 2 of these caves could be dug but no digs are known to be on-going.

Links
None Known

Linkswent and had a nose at these today Ian, the caves that are opposite to these on the other side of the footpath on the same side as the one with the large low entrance, seem like they could be dug as i pulled some loose debris away. And by crouching right down, a long passage can be seen carrying on for what may be 30mtrs or so, might be worth having a word with the caravan site owner to see if some digs may be allowed. The positive side to this is that i know the owner very well so wish me luck and i'll post my results.

Very Happy
