Dudley Caving Club - Caving

Dudley Cave Rescue Team was formed in 1966 as part of the Dudley Auxiliary Fire Service after a number of incidents in the underground limestone caverns around Dudley. In its early years it was called out on several occasions. Soon the activities of the team spread to mine and cave exploration throughout the UK.

In the 1970s the majority of the limestone mines were filled in and so there was a much reduced need for the Club's services. The last local callout, until this year, was in 1975 when the Club was asked to carry out an extensive search of the remaining underground workings. This was to do with the infamous Leslie Whittle/Black Panther case.
