Caving Gear Image

Descent Magazine

The premier caving magazine of the UK, published regularly to bring the latest news, views, and reviews. The production values and picture quality are as good as any. Also - compared to the internet - the magazine format has the great virtue of telling you about things that you didn't know you didn't know.

£5.95

Descent 257

Just out, forty eight pages of all the news that's fit to print, in a durable and club-hut friendly format. The usual regional news, and a couple of cracking articles. Look out for Neil Silverwood's inspiring piece on caving in the west coast of New Zealand.For those of a more scientific bent, Hazel Barton's ongoing series on microbial life in caves is also fascinating. Once again, Judith and Chris have come up with the goods!

Descent 256

Thirty-seven full-colour pages in the June - July issue. The latest news from the regions and round the world, including the most recent topo for Car Pot in the Dales. Also, an account of further explorations in Fermanagh / Cavan's Shannon Pot - a fascinating place. In other articles there are two farewells to strong cavers of the past, John Buxton and Tony Knibbs, and a really fascniating - too brief - account of the Mossdale explorations of the sixties, and their well- known outcome. I particularly value these historical perspectives that rarely find their way online. The Yorkshire Gold article provides a well illustrated update on the York Uni club's most recent expeditions to the Durmitor Massif in Montenegro; an area with much more potential, and one to keep an eye on for young tigers! All the news that's fit to print...The rest goes on social media...
Descent 255 
£5.95

Descent 255

Forty full-colour pages in the April- May issue. The latest news from the regions and round the world, with the review of a forthcoming book of great interest to most British (and surely all Northern) cavers. Excellent cover shot of Paul Mackrill in India All the news that's fit to print...
Descent 254 
£5.75

Descent 254

Forty full-colour pages in the February-March issue. The latest news from the regions and round the world, with news of a forthcoming book of great interest to most British (and surely all Northern) cavers. Also, a fascinating account of Lascaux III - you thought Lascaux II was pretty good! In other articles Gina Moseley writes about the ice caves of Mendip and asks for your help; Pen y Ghent Pot has a new rigging guide; and there is a description of a Proper Big Pit, Cantabria's Torcs del Porron (if you think Gaping Gill is something, check out this baby) All the news that's fit to print...
Descent 253 
£5.75

Descent 253

A bumper issue of 47 pages, with the latest local and international news, and full of top-flight images. This issue has news of explorations in the near-legendary Boreham Cave, and an account of cave life in Matienzo, as well as articles on FOUL Pot, Wgmore Swallet's far reaches, and the long awaited breakthrough at Doom's Retreat in the Peak system. In it there is also a tribute to the late, much missed Paul Dold, whose excellent image graced the cover of Descent 252.
Descent 252 
£5.75

Descent 252

This issue has news on the exploration of Wookey 23 3/4, and an account (with very impressive photos) of the floods in the Dales which came soon after Euro Speleo. The main featured articles concern the Iron caves of Bilbao; the pushing of the Lost River series in Gaping Ghyll; and a very well illustrated description of Pen Park Hole near Bristol. Thirty nine pages of excellently produced news and interest, including lots of things you didn't know, you didn't know.

The November '15 issue. This one has news on the ongoing work in surveying OFD; Martyn Farr's diving exploits in the South Island of New Zealand; and an extended article on cave photography. It is fitting that the cover photograph for this issue is a particularly fine image.
