At this point in our Journal should have appeared an account of the Club's activities at Silverdale Gill Pot.

Since the very early days of the club's existence, members have from time to time dug in this pot, which we feel convinced is the key to Brans Gill Head.

As we go to press, we hear that at last there is hope of our efforts being rewarded. The water producing the rumble which has spurred us on over many years is at last in sight - at the bottom of a 25 foot pitch.

The top of this pitch needs some hammering, but everyone is very optimistic that the exploration of Silverdale Gill Pot will be prominent in the next issue of our Journal.
