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.
Please note that in line with the current advice from government concerning Covid-19, the Wessex Cave Club Headquarters building, Upper Pitts, is only open for camping. The grounds and washdown area are open to members with their guests and members of clubs with reciprocal rights. Booking and covid guidance can be found by following the following link: HERE
