This series of talks takes place on the second Monday of each month, in support of the International Year of Caves and Karst (IYCK). Monday's talk is "The Chalk: Britain's most important karst region", with Andy Farrant and Lou Maurice, British Geological Survey, Keyworth, Nottingham.

Membership Renewals
Please note that our membership team is short-staffed at the moment, due to long-term illness. As a result, we have postponed the issuing of BCRA membership cards for a few weeks. (BCA DIM cards are also postponed). The system should automatically acknowledge your membership application but sometimes those emails go astray. So, if you need a confirmation of your membership of BCRA (or BCA), or you need to be reminded of your online access credentials, please contact me at
