 In the weeks leading up to his death, Tony Jarratt very generously donated his remaining stock of the fourth edition of "​Mendip Underground"​ and Herbert Balch'​s classic "​Mendip - Its Swallet Caves and Rock Shelters"​ to the Mendip Cave Registry and Archive. It was Tony's wish that the books be sold by the MCRA to raise funds for the publication of a fifth edition of "​Mendip Underground"​. The MCRA will fulfil Tony's wish in the next 2 to 3 years and will dedicate the new book to both Tony and Dave Irwin, his co-author for the third and fourth editions. ​ In the weeks leading up to his death, Tony Jarratt very generously donated his remaining stock of the fourth edition of "​Mendip Underground"​ and Herbert Balch'​s classic "​Mendip - Its Swallet Caves and Rock Shelters"​ to the Mendip Cave Registry and Archive.
