Steve Robinson visited Boreham cave as part of the ongoing research project. Extensive dry passages are reached via hands & knees crawling and 250m of diving including a committing low section named “The Slot”. A 17m climb leads to “Tinkle Tubes” passage and the legendary “China Shop” which is as beautiful & delicate as photo’s suggest!
The return journey was expedited by falling the last 10 feet of the climb. Badly bruised but functional, an uneventful return to daylight was made before his right knee seized solid. A stop off was made in Kirkby Lonsdale for purchase of those well known analgesics: Ibuprofen and Tallisker.
