Sexy Steve came all the way from Bristol for this.
Don’s post- hand job sedentary return to caving meant a short trip to Lynnkirk cave: a pleasant, short trip beside the hilariously named Shittlehope burn just outside Stanhope. After several pies in a nearby café, we next headed to Sowan burn cave: a mini Fairy Holes. His thumb is still swollen so I had to crouch down onto all fours to assist Miller’s crossing over the fence. Don sensibly stayed above ground and saved his thumb, while Steven and I explored the very entertaining cave.
