After our last trip into Staffordshire, we decided to go again, and, taking advantage of the long dry spell, to try one of the Manifold river caves. We chose Darfar Pot, and, in the sweltering heat of the early evening, eight of us met at the parking area at Wettonmill. First find the cave! This was a very rare occasion, eight of us, with an enormous combined experience, but nobody had been down, or even been to, our selected venue. Steve and I were the first to arrive, half an hour before the others, and, before changing into our kit, we decided to locate the entrance.
