Caving Club Journals online

Congratulations to the Wessex Cave Club for making their entire back catalogue of journals available online. This is an excellent resource and joins those from the BEC and the UBSS which have been available for some time. In each case non-members will find that the latest publications are not uploaded for open view until about a year after publication, obviously the members get to see them first, but also in each of these three cases, there is no need to ‘log-on’ or ‘register’ on the site, the contents are there at the click of a mouse.

We have yet to discover any other Mendip clubs that have made their publications so easily available, but are aware that the Wealden Cave & Mine Society the South Wales Caving Club, the Yorkshire Ramblers Club, the Shropshire Caving and Mining Club, and Oxford University Caving Club, to name but a few, have done so in other parts of the country.

We would be delighted to hear from other clubs and societies who have made their journals freely available and will happily add more links to our Club Journals online page
