Caving Group in Sedgley, DY3 3XF
Dudley Cave Rescue Team was formed in 1966 as part of the Dudley Auxiliary Fire Service after a number of incidents in the underground limestone caverns around Dudley. In its early years it was called out on several occasions. Soon the activities of the team spread to mine and cave exploration throughout the UK.
In the 1970s the majority of the limestone mines were filled in and so there was a much reduced need for the Club's services. The last local callout was when the Club was asked to carry out an extensive search of the remaining underground workings. This was to do with the infamous Leslie Whittle/Black Panther case.
The Club these days is a general caving club, but still retains its rescue links.
The team visits all of the main caving regions in England and Wales: the Yorkshire Dales, Derbyshire, South Wales and the Mendips.
The Club has its own meeting place which is well equipped for caver training.
The name of the Club was changed to Dudley Caving Club in 1999.
