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.

If you would like to try caving please contact the Caving Secretary as shown HERE

Please note that in line with the current advice from the government concerning Covid-19 the facilities at Upper Pitts are limited. Both bunkrooms and camping are available to members BUT must be booked in advance and are limited in numbers. The Committee will continue to monitor the situation.
