Cilcain Bridge Rising

Location
SJ 186 651

Directions
Park in the car park by the lower Cilcain Bridge. Go into the river and walk upstream for around 200 yards. In dry weather the river is virtually dry (and is totally dry above the rising) and you will see the entrance on the right hand bank with water coming out. In wet weather the whole river will be running

Access
Ungated, no known permissions required

Suggested Equipment
Towel for a quick peep (you will get wet)
Full diving apparatus if the collapsed passage is to be explored.

Length
Several metres to a blockage

Flood risk
It is flooded and sumped

Cave Attributes
Cave diving

Description
This is believed to be the resurgence from a stream only a couple hundred of feet away higher up the hill (Coed Nant Gain). However, dye testing revealed that the water from above took 4 hours to make the journey through even though the stream above was running well. This would suggest a very lengthy passage.

The entrance to the resurgence is artificial but quickly becomes natural.

Although a blockage now prevents diving, a rope remains intact (travelling through the blockage) which was presumably installed by previous cave divers.

Unexplored Passages
There has been no recent exploration of the passage due to the collapse

Digs
None known to be in progress

Links
None known
