The Wessex Cave Club is an active caving club with around 300 members, making us one of the largest clubs in the U.K.  Formed  in 1934 the club remains at the forefront of cave exploration in the UK and overseas.

Our head quarters Upper Pitts is located in the heart of the Mendip Hills in Priddy, near Wells, Somerset. This puts us close to all the major cave  systems, with some of the more famous ones such as Swildon’s Hole on our door step.

We continue to welcome all cavers, both members and non-members into our midst. However if for some reason you have not taken that bold step into the underground world, we welcome you to come and have a go!
