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.

We’d love to know what you think of Darkness Below UK, and any suggestions you may have for articles or improvements.

You can contact Darkness Below by email at [email protected] – ideally we’d answer every email in minutes, but sometimes it may take longer – so please give us a little time – sometimes we’re underground!

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

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!
