Access Issues at Llethrid Swallet and Tooth Cave

LLETHRID SWALLET ACCESSPlease would all groups visiting Llethrid Swallet refrain from accessing the swallet from the Green Cwm footpath. There is a ‘ransom strip’ of land that needs to be crossed, running alongside the footpath. We do not have permission to cross this and any trespass has the potential to cause problems for the landowner of the swallet.
The landowner of Llethrid Swallet, Mr. James, is quite happy to give cavers access to the cave. The access will be through Llethrid Farm itself. Please enter through the yard, make a courtesy call at the house, then proceed past the house, through a farm gate, down the valley and over a stile to the swallet.
For the moment, a key is not needed to enter the cave.
TOOTH CAVE ACCESSA key is needed to access this cave. The old combination lock proved vulnerable to misuse and has been replaced by a keyed padlock. A key is held at the SWCC HQ.
