Aberystwyth Caving Club has a long and glorious (maybe) history. We’ve been around since 1966 or so and in that time we’ve done practically every cave worth doing in the UK, gone caving all over the world, discovered, dug, explored and surveyed new caves, and drank enough alcohol to fill a bucket the size of Sweden. And all without losing anyone (not even from alcohol poisoning).
