No Image Officially the objectives of the NWCC are "The Exploration, Study and Conservation of Caves and Historic Mines in North Wales." - Unofficially we just try to have fun underground. The NWCC indulges in all of the usual activities that you might expect from a caving club. There are frequent dry meets usually once a month after Committee Meetings at convenient Pubs around the area. An Annual Dinner and riotous beanfeast is held every year after the AGM. We also go underground from time to time. There are regular mid-week evening outings which range from local tourist trips, to digging the latest project. Digs vary from careful re-opening and conservation of old mines through to discovering virgin cave. During the year we have trips further afield or locally to give new members the chance to see the local caves. Recent trips include: - Juniper Gulf, Notts Pot and Bull Pot in Yorkshire -Weekend in South Wales to visit Ogof Draenen -SRT training. -Two weeks exploration of caves and mines in the Picos de Europa -Two weeks reconnaissance in the Spanish Pyrennees. Next year we will be spending yet more time in the Picos de Europa to explore caves in the central massif and coastal ranges In addition to all this we take a strong interest in the history and conservation of the many local slate and lead mines. Activities range from careful and patient digging to re-open passages, through capping and lining mine shafts, to doing archival research.
