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 the government concerning Covid-19 Wessex Cave Club Upper Pitts will be CLOSED and LOCKED from 00.01am on 26 December 2020. The Committee will continue to monitor the situation.
