Thanks to Chris Howes and his staff at Descent for giving the project such good coverage in the last few issues of Descent. There have been some excellent articles on the re-stabilisation and reopening of Whitewell Pot, rubbish clear out of Gunnerfleet cave and an article about progress on cave monitoring. The Northern Boggarts have also produced an excellent article for Speleology on the technical challenges of the Whitewell Pot work. Well done to all involved and to those who provided excellent pictures. Good coverage of various aspects of the project has also been provided recently in the Yorkshire Post and in the Darlington and Stockton Times. For a while we even had a video clip on the Yorkshire Post website! One of the "Northern Boggarts" is preparing a special set of photographic display boards to describe the Whitewell Pot work which was undertaken last year.
