Who can use the caves at Salt Hill Activity Centre?
If you learnt to crawl before you learnt to walk, then caving is for you!
Children – Artificial caves are perfectly suitable for children aged five and up, although children should be supervised at all times. Confident children will be able to move through the passages much more adeptly than adults, as the low passages and squeezes will not be as difficult for them.
Disabled Users – The cave is an excellent place for anyone to test themselves in a challenging and fun environment. Caving sees participants exercise a number of different skills, from logical thinking to physical strength, when navigating their way through the catacombs. It is an activity at which people of all abilities can excel, and the teamwork element further enhances the experience for all users.
Public Service Training – The cave design can be suitable for training of individuals or groups that need to practice restricted access or confined space rescue or evacuation techniques. These include the Fire Services, Ambulance Services, Search and Rescue Groups.
Are there age restrictions?
Children under the age of 5 years are not allowed to use the Caving activity. Children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by an adult staying on site at all times. An adult is deemed to be the child’s parent or a person aged 18 years or over.
Are there size restrictions?
The caving system may be difficult and/or uncomfortable for a caver with anatomical dimensions over; 6’4” high, 44” Chest, 20” Shoulder & 42” waist. This does not mean they will not get through the main passage way but may be overwhelmed by the difficulty of the experience and not have the mental state to continue resulting in a rescue situation.
Is caving safe?
At Salt Hill Activity Centre, your safety is our top priority. We have the following measures in place to keep you safe at all times.
Entrance and Exits – The design includes a number of exit hatches, which can be accessed at ground level. The cave is an entirely safe environment and under proper supervision, no caver would be more than three minutes from an entrance.
Air Circulation – The design of the cave complex encourages free air movement as ensuring good air circulation is incredibly important. Entrances and exits are located at different elevations within the design, therefore creating a natural airflow throughout the cave system.
Will it be dark inside the cave?
There is no lighting (emergency or otherwise) in the cave. All users will be equipped with helmets and battery operated headlights.
What equipment do I need to bring?
You will not require any equipment to tackle this adventure. We‘ll provide you with a full safety briefing and all the equipment you need for your caving experience.
What clothing do I need to wear?
Suitable footwear (ie trainers), long sleeve tops and long trousers should be worn when Caving. Clothing can become damaged and the centre does not accept responsibility for any damage caused to clothing or personal items.
What will I see in the cave?
The Salt Hill Activity Centre caves have loads of exciting features, including the following:
Passageways – In a natural cave, there are sometimes regular sections that are governed by the rock strata. In an artificial cave, passageways will quickly turn and twist to help disorientate the visitor within a short section and make the caver feel lost within an instant. Throughout the experience, you can select between different routes and passageways.
Chambers – Between each obstacle and feature in the cave there are sections large enough to accommodate two or more people and to allow users to turn around. The large central chamber is both the ‘goal’ of the exploration of the cave and also the ‘hub’ that is returned to as various passages are explored. The chamber can have boulders and stalagmites on the floor and stalactites hanging from the roof, as well as a large high-level ledge, which can be accessed via an easy climb. Your cave includes five chambers of various shapes and sizes.
How long will my session last?
Sessions last for 1 hour and includes a safety briefing. It is really important that you arrive on time and don’t miss your safety briefing. If you do you will not be able to take part in the session or receive a refund however we will wherever possible try to fit you into another session.
