Caving & Potholing are excellent ways of discovering the caverns and cave systems throughout the UK. Every cave is different and may include crawling through tight holes and sliding down underground rivers, which all adds to the attractions of caving & potholing. The difference between them being that pot holes are vertical cave systems, and the only way on is down. But never go without qualified instructors if you have no experience because it is also very dangerous if you don't do it right. Follow the simple safety rules and you can enjoy the challenge of caving and potholing.
