On Saturday, the only photos that were taken were by Martin, on his hard-as-nails trip to Bye George Pot with Becka and Julian.

Sunday was a little more photogenic, with a trip to Notts II on Leck Fell (so named as it was originally discovered by diving from Notts Pot, although a dry entrance has since been found). This is an extensive cave carrying a large stream, with many beautiful decorations in the main streamway and the many side inlets.
