About Caving at Clearwell Caves

BEYOND THE BEATEN PATH
(SEMI-DEEP CAVING)

Follow your curiosity further and take an adventure behind the barriers, off the well-trodden track. Perfect for younger groups or those that want the adventure to continue, but aren’t ready for anything too challenging; the semi-deep caving experience crawls and clambers into areas visitors wouldn’t normally venture. Gear up with helmets and lamps and get a little dirty; starting on the public tour then going off route with our experienced and knowledgeable guides to discover areas last seen by the children and adults of our mining past.

A perfect experience for all ages, activity trips, birthdays, memorable occasions, or just for those with a curious nature.

Allow 2 hours.
Small groups are led by experienced and knowledgeable guides. The 2hrs includes time for kitting up etc.
