Cave Registry

The current incarnation of The Registry is new and rapidly evolving. Interested individuals and organisations are actively encouraged to get involved, to help shape and develop it. It is currently part of the ITWG.

The National Cave Registry, managed by the BCA’s Cave Registry Working Group, is an organisation that aims to promote and support the systematic collection, recording and publication of information about the subterranean world. The primary objective is to maintain a comprehensive list of all sites within the British Isles of interest to cave and mine explorers. It is designed to act as an index or link into the other sources of information. Limited information about each site is held centrally; more comprehensive information is maintained by regional and other organisations. As such, the National Cave Registry is a good starting point to research a particular site or area.
