Det skal I lave

We'll kick off with a bit of local geology, especially the famous Devonian rocks, created south of the Equator, and we'll learn how caves happen. Before going underground we'll consider the ancient humans and how they got here across the English Channel in prehistoric times. Now for the Narnia moment; I open the large oak door, you go "wow!" and you step right into the cave. An experience described by Beatrix Potter in 1893, which I'll share with you from her autobiography. It's suddenly quiet and your private underground experience begins; into a place known to Charles Darwin, to Agatha Christie, to King George V, and of course to nomadic ancient humans including Neanderthals. This Stone Age home is awesome and what's amazing is you are seeing the same ceilings and experiencing what people did thousands of years ago. I'll show you where the oldest human fossil in Britain was found and tell you the controversy story surrounding its age. You'll handle flint hand axes, see a 400,000 year old cave bear skull and other original fossils - selfie time. During our underground wander we'll stop and have a glass of locally made wine or beer or soft drink by candlelight - my favourite part! We'll find our way to the exit (hopefully) and back to the modern world where I'll sort you out with a traditional Devon cream tea on the terrace over the Ilsham Valley.

Hi, I'm Nick. The cave we're going to is in Devon, UK, it's millions of years old and has been used by humankind for over 500,000 years. Britain's very first Stone Age people used this cave before anywhere else making it Britain's oldest home. Access into the cave is carefully controlled but with me you will have a bespoke cave experience you won’t forget. I've led cave tours into Kent Cavern for 20 years and know its history inside out. I'll chat in English, or French if you prefer! I'm an expert in showcaves and UNESCO Geoparks having travelled the World as a UNESCO Geopark expert. I'Il add plenty of local knowledge and suggestions of other places you must go in Devon.

Flere tips

The underground walk is relatively flat, entirely on prepared surfaces, well lit, with a flight of 9 steps. No specialist equipment is required and you will not have to stoop. It's like a walk along a flat section of footpath. The natural environment means that wheelchair access is not possible.
