Easter Grotto

On June 18th Red Rose members made a fairly concerted effort to clean up Easter Grotto in Ease Gill Caverns as part of their ongoing conservation work in the cave. Spray bottles, scrubbing brushes, sponges and other cleaning aids were carried up to the passage by a team of five. Some equipment was left there for future use.The passage was also retaped. Please do not cross the new tapes.

This involved a team of water lifters up from the stream at Assembly Hall and returning dirty water, some scrubbers and some wiper-uppers and tape-upperers.  The stile on the way to Lancaster Hole was repaired by Mel Wilkinson. Ray took the underground photos of the work in progress.
