Little Neath River Cave, Bridge Cave & Upper Nedd (Neath) Valley

An access agreement has been reached between the Cambrian Caving Council and the Landowners of the above caves, on behalf of all cavers both recreational and professional.

Parking for these sites will be at the Bridge Cave car park only. As before, cavers should each pay a £1 goodwill fee to the landowners, at Blaen Nedd Isaf farm.

There will probably be some form of secure collection box at the car park in the future but for now a quick trip to the farm by one member of the group to continue a good relationship with the landowners.

The farmyard must not be used for parking or changing.

Sporting cavers are asked to have suitable 3rd part liability insurance. Further pre-requisites of access are:

Should anyone wish to dig or conduct a scientific project within LNRC, please contact the CCC beforehand. The cave and the land above and around the area are designated SSSI which carries special protection. No dig or project will be refused if they are carried out in an acceptable manner.

Access for professional groups will depend on their demonstration of the appropriate insurance cover to the CCC, have carried out the necessary risk assessments and paid their appropriate fee to the landowners.
