I met up with some other cavers staying at the Belfry and because of high water levels we went down Swildon's. When we got to the blockhouse water was flowing in the upper pipe. We went in via the short dry way, which was sporting as Jacob's ladder had a lot of water coming over it. Once in the main streamway it was tough as the water levels was so high, the 20ft was amusing and we eventually got down to the sump where there was at least a 1m of water above the sump line.
