The most underground club in Wales? Watch the ITV video.

Welcome/Croeso to the South Wales Caving Club!  We are based in Penwyllt, near Abercraf, fifteen miles up the valley from Swansea. This is where you will find us most weekends. We have around 300 members from all around the UK, and from overseas.

South Wales is one of the finest caving regions in the UK. Directly below our headquarters lies Ogof Ffynnon Ddu and across the valley is Dan-yr-Ogof, two very extensive cave systems. Within easy reach are many other caves. It is also a great area for walking and cycling, bordering on the Black Mountain and the Brecon Beacons.  Half price offer for Provisional Members this year!
