Descent magazine is a bi-monthly British and Irish magazine dedicated to caving. It has been in print since 1969, first as a small format magazine, and then as A4 in 1977.[1][2]

As well as feature articles about the recent international expeditions and the development of caving techniques and equipment, it maintains a network of correspondents in each of the caving regions of the UK and Ireland who report on the latest caving discoveries and changes to access agreements for their area.[3]

The current editor, Chris Howes, began work on the magazine in 1988 and bought it from its previous publisher, Gloster Publications, in 1998.[1]
