Description

Northern Caves

NOTE: This copy is new and unused, but has suffered damage to two corners in the post (see photos) and is offered at a reduced price. Pages and binding all intact and clean. As this is a guidebook and likely to become less pristine over time, this might be an opportunity to save a little cash. No returns on this purchase.

In one sense, caving guidebooks are the lifeblood of British caving; they detail sites and tell us where to go, how to gain access, even where lesser caves are found that we think are worth digging. The caves of northern England were covered by a set of three guides, long out of print and out of date. Now, in September 2017, we see the publication of a new guidebook: Northern Caves. The Three Counties System and the North-West (thus, roughly speaking, replacing the old volume 3).

This is a major undertaking that has consumed a decade of the authors' lives, producing a thick, finely produced and printed softback with a laminated cover and sewn pages for strength; it runs to 472 pages, including 21 new maps and 33 surveys (three of them double-pages). Every caver who visits the north will wish to have a copy and Wild Places is proud to stock the guide. As is usual on this site, the price includes postage.

Also enjoy a free caving-related, laminated bookmark with your book order, while stocks last.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR EU CUSTOMERS

VAT is not charged on UK publications. Orders to the EU are posted without tax paid: you are responsible for VAT and any other charges on delivery. We will be unable to refund you in full if you refuse delivery or the charges are not paid.

Non-UK orders


If stock is available for all post destinations, selecting any set of options will allow you to place your order immediately.

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, selecting your options may not allow an order to be placed, even though stock is available. 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 ALL DESCENT SUBSCRIBERS OUTSIDE THE UK

We regret that due to the volatility of Royal Mail postage charges, we have been forced to remove the option for two-year subscriptions. We have also been forced to remove the option for economy mail to the EU, given indications that Royal Mail intends to remove this service.

All international mail is now being despatched in paper wrapping using Royal Mail customs and address labels mandated by them. We also regret this means we can no longer indicate the last issue of your subscription on the mailing sheet or supply a reminder to renew with the final edition. Please track your own subscription ending or check with us at any time. Subscriptions begun since September 2021 have a comment added in your account (under the tab for the order) which records the final issue to be supplied.

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, it is charged within the EU and the VAT (potentially plus a handling fee) now apply to all orders to the EU.

Ideally, the VAT should be paid at the point of posting, but doing so requires registration with an agent to handle the payments, and this is incredibly expensive and not financially viable. To be clear, all small publishers in the UK are in the same position and we are unable to post any items to the EU with VAT or other duties paid.

Ordering any item from Wild Places, including a Descent subscription, requires that you accept responsibility of paying the VAT 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. We will maintain a link from the left-hand column on the home page with the latest updates. If you are an existing subscriber to Descent and have not replied yet to our enquiries concerning your deliveries, please make contact.

NOTE: Subscribers in Norway or Switzerland (which are outside the EU) should place your order on the Subscription International page or contact us first.
