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.

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.

Descent 247

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.

The Summer issue for 2015. Excellent images, British and international news. Buy it or be badly informed!
Descent 243

£5.35

Descent 242

An excellent cover and some intersting contents. Also news and info that can't be lost in web mush... For techie sorts, the Mulu article is of particular interest.

Descent 241

Latest issue of Descent. In this copy: Crusader extensions in the Peak; CRoW Act; Martyn Farr in New Zealand; and Tim allen on the Three Counties system. Not just news (including the things you didn't know, that you didn't know!) but also, in years to come, a historical record of the state of British caving in 2014. The internet isn't a replacement for a publication... Just saying.
