Descent (111), April 1993

SECOND-HAND COPY


To Cross a Red Lake

In September 1992 the China Caves Project turned its attention to Xingwen County in southern Sichuan, an area recced the previous year. Two massive dolines with huge fossil entrances were found, plus a major rising and a showcave with a car park for twenty coaches in its entrance. Pam Fogg reports the outcome of this latest Chinese expedition.

As Luck Would Have It

Following a short dig, the discovery of a new cave in South Wales has been announced over a year after it was first entered. Toby Stewart tells of the discovery of Ogof Nant Rhin, which bears some rather ominous alternative names (Cave of the Cold Stream, Cave of the Hidden Stream, Ghastly Entrance Cave ...).

The Blight of the Bumble Bee

There’s more discoveries with a breakthrough in Cardno Adit’s Last Stand Choke.

The Reopening of Pen Park Hole

Pen Park Hole near Bristol – a cave with a long history – has been reopened.

The Descent Caption Competition

It’s time for a new competition to begin, with a Warmbac wetsuit on offer as a prize.

Viewpoint: The Porth Phenomenon

An article concerning the fatalities that have occurred at Port yr Ogof since 1957 appeared in Descent (109). Suggestions concerning the best course of action to avoid future problems have since appeared, including several letters and reports. Here, Viewpoint includes two such letters by Jim Eyre and Tony Knibbs, which look at the subject in rather different ways.

Gear Review: Autohelm Compass and Apex 17 lights

A caver review of two products, one aimed at the caving market and the other for use on yachts!

On the Ho Chi Minh Trail

Tony Jarratt’s been off to Vietnam and returned with tales of exploration and local telly coverage.

STOCK ALLOCATION

Our goods for advertised for sale with postage costs included; selecting the destination other than the UK will alter the price, to take into account the increased carriage charges. 

If stock is limited, for example with a single copy of a second-hand book, it will be assigned to UK stock. If you require posting to an address outside the UK, you will not be able to place this order, even though stock is available. We regret this, but the software has limitations. If this is the case, please contact us to enable the options you require.

Please see our FAQs relating to deliveries, and the Delivery page linked from the bottom of each page, before placing your order if time is an important element for your order.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR EU CUSTOMERS

On 1 July 2021 the EU removed all exemptions for tax and customs duty on low value items posted from the UK to the EU, meaning that although VAT is 0% on books and magazines in the UK, VAT is charged within the EU and the tax (potentially plus a handling fee) now apply to all orders to the EU.

We are unable to post any items to the EU with VAT or other duties prepaid; as a small company, it is a long way outside our abilities to engage with an agent to do so. All items are therefore mailed as DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid). Ordering any item from Wild Places requires that you accept responsibility for paying the VAT applicable in your country and any other local charges on delivery.

To be clear: Wild Places will NOT cover any charges levied by your country; it is your responsibility to accept these when placing an order. We apologise for the situation, but it is outside our control. Refusal to pay charges upon delivery will not be accepted as a reason for refunding in full any returned items.

NOTE: Norway and Switzerland are outside the EU and orders will be filled as normal.
