Descent 256 Coming Soon!

Descent 256 is on its way! Make sure your subscription is up to date so you don’t miss out on all the latest caving and mining news from around the regions!

In the new issue, Hazel Barton continues her series on how microbes have helped to shape the passages we traverse, using sometimes unexpected food sources. On 24 June 1967, six cavers died in Mossdale Caverns. A survivor of the tragedy tells their own story.

A long series of expeditions have taken York University cavers ever deeper into Bunda Jama in Montenegro, and we’ll learn how their explorations have taken them to even greater depths than on their previous trips.

We’ll hear about some strange things have happened deep in the Gouffre Berger, and also learn about the way in which the science of caves touches us all and how every caver might become more involved in research that makes a difference.

There’ll also be a farewell to Mendip caver and guidebook author Tony Knibbs.

Come on, folks, have all this and more landing on your doorstep six times a year for only the price of a couple of pints of beer an issue. We’ll be bringing you a full report on the issue as soon as it hits our mat, but in the meantime, we hope the above is enough to whet your appetite and send you over to Wildplaces Publishing subscriptions page to ensure yours is up to date!
