Much higher than normal levels of CO2 have been measured at Cuckoo Cleeves recently. Levels of 6% have been measured just inside the entrace and cavers are advised to avoid this cave for the summer until the problem reduces. Information on the effects of Carbon Dioxide.

It is probable that CO2 levels are elevated in all of the caves at the moment and particular care should be taken at other sites that are known to have a CO2 problem, such as Tynings Barrow Swallet and White Pit.
