Cathedral Cave and Tunnel Cave Airlock Access Rules

Due to a problem with the airlock door, no access can be made through the airlock at the moment.

(NB. Access to Tunnel Cave via Tunnel Top is administered solely by the SWCC. The following rules are for caver access to the airlock and Cathedral Cave from either direction.)

DYO Conservation Advisory Panel

Scheduled as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), Dan Yr Ogof is afforded a special level of protection under the Wildlife & Countryside Act (1981). The Dan Yr Ogof Conservation Advisory Panel works with the showcave management team to administer the wild cave that lies beyond the showcaves. Conservation of this unique cave is the primary aim of the panel. Exploration and access to the cave is controlled by the panel working with a team of conservation wardens who accompany the caving trips beyond the showcave.
