Underwater Potholer is a new book packed full of tales from the subterranean world of the cave diver.

Duncan Price has been exploring the mysterious and enthralling world of caves for some thirty years, and has now written about it in ‘Underwater Potholer’, which goes to print this spring.

a mysterious and enthralling world

His book begins with student antics in the caves of the Mendip Hills, and climaxes with a hair-raising escape from deep beneath an English stately home.

Along the way we are treated to a rollercoaster of emotions, from the joys of discovering new caves to the sadness of losing close friends.

Duncan is certainly well travelled. He has dived beneath Welsh valleys, Yorkshire Dales and the Blue Ridge Mountains. There are shark attacks, unexploded bombs and secret nuclear research facilities.

It’s not just a book for speleologists, either. Technical concepts and jargon are explained clearly and concisely so the reader can follow Duncan into the depths and share his experiences – in safety.

Underwater Potholer by Duncan Price will be published by Whittles Publishing in March/April 2015 in softback, priced £18.99.
