The Bung Ladder in Speedwell MIne was found to be damaged so due to the the Bung Ladder has been removed but it will return once fixed. Four anchors have been installed that cavers can use. Cavers heading down the Bung can rig an abseil rope but trips 'up-hill' will not be able to climb the Bung. A fixed line may appear here but Derbyshire Caving Association (DCA) reminds cavers that ropes fixed to any DCA anchor are NOT the responsibility of the DCA and their use is at your own risk.
