The stalagmite and stalactite formations in Otter Hole Cave are absolutely stunning and have enthralled the cavers who have visited the site since it was discoverd in 1970. Although it has always been known that parts of the cave flooded when the River Wye rose due to the incoming tide, very few people have ever witnessed the results first hand.

Spending 2500 man hours over 8 years, undertaking 36 trips into the cave, Paul Taylor and his film crew take you on a journey both above and below ground to reveal the secrets of this unique cave and show what acutally happens.

Every year, GCRG Officers, Committee Members and Reps clock up huge amounts of mileage on GCRG business. Under HMRC rules, they are allowed to claim expenses on this mileage from the Group at a rate of 45p / mile. However, if they kindly choose to donate these expenses back to the Group, Gift Aid can be claimed on the donation. During the year, records are kept of all mileage driven and this is entered into the Gift Aid system by our Treasurer.

Additionally, any donations to GCRG are eligible for Gift Aid if you so choose.
