    Underwater Potholer: A Cave Diver's Memoirs
    Duncan Price - Paperback - Whittles

Only a dozen men might have stood on the moon but Duncan has squeezed into many places that no-one has ever been before, and some places that no-one is ever likely to go again (probably for a very good reason). These memoirs recount the author's misadventures during his thirty-year involvement with caving and cave diving beginning with student antics in the caves of the Mendip Hills to a hair-raising escape from deep beneath an English stately home.
