Access Procedures

Following a recent period of uncertainty, ongoing access to Ogof Draenen has now been secured. Access to the cave, under the terms of the Access Licence and subject to recent clarification by the landowner, is by the original entrance only (at Grid Reference: SO 2467:1176, Altitude: 362 m). It is stressed that any attempts to open or otherwise use other entrances to the cave on the land owned by PwllDu Conservation Limited will result in termination of the current access agreement and cavers are therefore asked to respect the terms of the Licence and the landowner's wishes.

The cave should be approached only by the path from the road by the Pwll Du Adventure Centre. Parking is available opposite the Lamb and Fox. The cave is gated and padlocked. Please note that the old combination padlock has now been changed to a key operated padlock. Further details of current access are available to member clubs; all others should contact the Access Officer in order to apply for a key: applications should come with only the stamp for a large envelope and an address label (jiffy bag not required).

It is a requirement of access to the cave that all trips in the cave are logged and there is a logbook installed at Cairn Junction within the cave for this purpose. Please can any shortages of pencils or paper be reported to the Access Officer or the Secretary.

There is no charge for access, but donations to the PDCMG are appreciated by the Treasurer. .

Please follow the Code of Conduct
