Caving in South Wales

We have a variety of caves within a short walk or drive from SWCC HQ, see below for more information on individual caves. We also have information on access procedures and can provide information on likely conditions.

Access arrangements

Please note that we have changed the rules for obtaining cave entrance keys from the Duty Officer. So that the Duty officer gets some free time, keys must be collected before 11.00 am and should be returned to the 'Drop Box' at the cottage.

Mid-week, keys can be collected from the same people who hold Keys for the HQ, please arrange access with them well in advance of your planned trip. Alternatively mid-week access can be facilitated through the key boxes at the HQ. 

All cavers collecting keys from SWCC must use the Destination Board at the SWCC Headquarters. It is highly reccommended to use this system even if your chosen cave does not have gated access, if your trip is based at the club.

Please note that in the interests of conservation, the use of carbide/acetylene lamps is not permitted in any of the caves in the South Wales area.
