OU Cave Club trips

Trips in Michaelmas Term provide great opportunities for new and experienced members alike to do some interesting caving, with a special focus on new members wishing to try caving. Our trip plans include Mendip, Wales and Yorkshire.

If for safety and logistic reasons we are unable to accommodate anyone on a trip, we'll let them know in advance, and prioritise them for a place on a trip later in the term.
