About us


Darkness Below is your site for everything underground, whatever your interest – caving, mining or archaeology.

We aim to bring you all the latest news and more.

If you’re planning an event we can help by promoting your event and listing it on our calendar.

If you supply caving equipment and would like us to link to your website, let us have your details. We’ll put a note and a link in our Gear Corner.

Darkness Below is run by cavers for cavers on a non profit making basis.

We’re looking for feedback and contributions to the site – if you’re interested in getting involved in any way, just drop us an email. Contributors can cover one aspect of underground exploration, or could simply contribute news from a single source, perhaps BCA, CHECC, NAMHO, or for example one of the regional caving organisations. We’re always on the lookout for news and photos, so do tell us what you and your club (if you have one) have been up to – or down to – and we’ll spread the word!
