Book sale for Mendip Cave Registry & Archive

Mendip Underground by Tony Jarratt & Dave Irwin
Mendip - Its Swallet Caves & Rock Shelters by Herbert Balch

In the weeks leading up to his death, Tony Jarratt very generously donated his remaining stock of the above two books to the MENDIP CAVE REGISTRY & ARCHIVE - a non-profit making organisation, independent of the caving clubs, dedicated to maintaining a register, bibliography and archive relating to all aspects of Mendip caving and its history. It was Tony's wish that the books be sold by the MCRA to raise funds for the publication of a fifth edition of Mendip Underground. The MCRA will fulfil Tony's wish in the next 2 to 3 years and will dedicate the new book to both Tony and Dave Irwin, his co-author for the third and fourth editions.
