When I learned I was going caving for one of the activities on the Forest of Dean #DeanWyeBloggers weekend, I was excited to be doing something new yet, wasn't entirely sure what to expect. What the heck IS caving?!
Turns out caving is quite literally clambering around in, and exploring, natural age-old caves 200m below the surface. These caves are all over the Forest of Dean, hidden beneath the forest floor. Though they are naturally occurring, they were used for years as mining caves as they hold iron ore. We were taken on a tour of these beautiful wonders by Jonathan at Clearwell Caves.
