About this book

The limestones and caves of the Buckfastleigh area of Devon have attracted much interest over many centurries. The stone has been valuable resource and has been extensively quarried, revealing networks of caves that have themselves turned out to be of considerable importance.

This booklet has been produced by the William Pengelly Cave Studies Trust as an updated and extended replacement for two of its earlier publications (viz. Caves in Buckfastleigh Quarries, 1985, and Joint Mitnor Cave, 1982). It includes descriptions of the history, geology and exploration of the caves that will be of interest to anyone who has visited the area and particularly for those who have seen some of the caves at the Trust's cave studies centre at Higher Kiln Quarry.
