Caves approved for anchoring

Caves approved for anchoring

Following our recent AGM, our new Committee have approved requests for several new potholes to be fitted with stainless steel resin-bonded anchors under the CNCC anchor scheme:

  • Echo Pot
  • Jean Pot
  • Cow Pot, Aardvark Country
  • Bye George Pot, Grand Cascade
  • Turbary Pot
  • North End Pot
  • Swan Dyke Pot
  • P5

Enthusiastic installers have been identified to take on these projects over the coming years, and these caves join other potholes which have already been approved for anchoring:

  • Pay Sank
  • (Get Down) Shep Pot
  • Strans Gill
  • Strangle Pot
  • Sylvester Pot
  • Old Ing to Dismal Hill (paused due to access issues)
  • Robinson’s Pot
  • Craftsman’s Pot
  • Greenwood Pot
  • Fossil Pot
  • Disappointment Pot (remedial work to existing anchors)
  • Simpson Pot (remedial work to existing anchors)

Thank you to our installers who put in a huge amount of work to plan these projects, review the current situation, weigh-up the conservation considerations, discuss with other installers, seek CNCC Committee approval, undertake the actual work and draw up a topo. It's a huge time and resource commitment, for which we are very appreciative.
