New Members weekend

On the weekend of 10th/11th November 2018, we are hosting an event for prospective new members to find out what makes the Shepton the best caving club on Mendip .

What’s happening?

We will be organising trips to a variety of Mendip caves on the Saturday and Sunday. There will be something for everyone, including exploratory trips for newcomers and sporting trips for more experienced cavers. There may also be a bit of revelry at the Club hut on Saturday night...

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

How to find us

From the A39 going north out of Wells take the Priddy Road (left turn westwards) towards Priddy. Pass the Hunters’ Lodge Inn crossroads. A few hundred yards further on is a garage on the right followed by a row of houses. At the end of the row is a telegraph pole with a piece of reflective tape on it. Turn right here up a track and head into the car park.
