Location: North Wales

North Wales Caving Club

The North Wales Caving Club is the oldest club in the area dedicated to the exploration of caves and mines. In the 40 years since it was formed it has been responsible for discovering and exploring all the major systems in North Wales.

Local trips are arranged every week with regular trips also made to all the other major caving regions of the UK. Several trips a year are also made further afield to explore caves overseas. We welcome new members whether experienced or complete novices and regularly hold trips for those looking for their first underground experience.

The NWCC maintains the access agreements for all the major caves in North Wales.  These include:

  • Ogof Llyn Parc
  • Ogof Llyn Ddu
  • Ogof Dydd Byraf
  • Ogof Hesp Alyn (OHA)
  • Ogof Hen Ffynhonau (OHF)/(Poacher’s)
  • Ogof Cefn-y-Gist

In addition NWCC also maintains access for a number of old lead mines in the area. There have been significant issues with access at some sites in the past so if in doubt please contact the club for the latest information and advice on how to obtain access.

If any of this sounds of interest please do not hesitate to get in touch.
