New Members weekend

Over the weekend of 31st October / 1st November 2015, we are hosting an event for prospective new members to try caving. Oh, and you will find out what makes the Shepton the best caving club on Mendip.

What’s happening?

We will be leading trips to a variety of Mendip caves on the Saturday and Sunday. There will be something for everyone, including exploratory trips for novices and sporting trips for more experienced cavers. There will also be a communal meal at the Club hut on Saturday night, with beer and general revelry...

Can I come if I’ve never been caving before?
