Birks Fell

A classic meet at a classic site -Birks Fell July 16

Very briefly - fuller report in next newsletter - this was a superb meet held in superb weather conditions by an absolutely magnificent team. Gary and Abigail Rhodes were accompanied to the true sump - yes, down the fearsome 'Slimy Slit', by Peter Whitaker, returning to the surface after an eight and three quarter hours trip. Whilst many others would have it that they have been down Birks Fell, the sad fact is that many have deluded themselves into thinking they have 'done it' when they have been only as far as Elbow Bend. This time it was the real thing. It is also, to the best of my knowledge, one of the extremely rare occasions when a female has been in the bottoming party. In fact it is the only occasion this has happened that Edward Whitaker and myself can recall in the thirty eight years since the big push by Randy Coe and Roy Taylor of the Craven Pothole Club through 'Connection Crawl' in 1968. Congratulations, Abigail.

Meanwhile the remainder of the team, Dave, Jonathan, Mike, John and yours truly were satisifed to have got as far as Whitehall.
All descended in and emerged to brilliant sunshine.
