Clearing Bogg Hall Rising

Bogg Hall Rising is the resurgence for all the caves on Hutton Beck and the River Dove. During 2017 it was noticed that a large tree had fallen from the hillside above.

Although not completely blocked, this had raised the water level inside Bogg Hall making the trip more hazardous and was also trapping silt inside that was beginning to build up.

On the evening on 22/3/2018 we took a break from underground digging to clear the blockage.

Despites its size,  three chainsaws removed it well within an hour.
