All trips are accompanied by a conservation warden. Many of the major Mendip caving clubs have their own wardens.

If you do not have a club warden or do not know a warden please phone Martin Grass on 01934-742710 or write to him at Bryscombe, New Road, Draycott, Cheddar, Somerset, BS27 3SG enclosing an SAE giving as much notice as possible of the dates you would like to visit the cave .

The cave is open from 1st April until the 31st October each year.

To preserve the cave the following regulations apply:
* No novices.
* No carbide lights.
* Clean over suits please.
* Maximum of three cavers per warden.
* One trip per day.

* All cavers must have adequate insurance cover.
* All groups to supply their own tackle for the pitches.
* A minimum £2 per person conservation donation is requested.

As a rough indication a trip to the Frozen Deep to see the chamber, tackle and detackle the pitch is approximately 3 1/2 hours. Photography and visiting other parts of the cave add considerably to this time.
