Recently Paul Taylor from the Gloucestershire Cave Rescue Group and Royal Forest of Dean Caving Club put a film in a competition at Napoli Underground. The film was of a visit by Sparky (Dave Parker) at 83 years of age to parts of Otter Hole (under Chepstow racecourse, Hall of the 30, tidal sump, mud, etc, you know,) that he hadn't ever been to before although he did a lot of the digging many many years before in the entrance series.
The film has been shown twice at the Palace Cinema in Cinderford, FoD and these showings have made nearly £1000 for GCRG.
The film won third prize in the competition and is well worth watching. It can now be seen on demand at the Napoli Underground website. There are lots and lots of other interesting films and lots of good stuff on the website, mines, urban exploration, caves and so on, a lot of it in English. Lots of fascinating mine stuff in there.
