Stories in Stone: Introductory Evening Caving Trip

20th Feb 2017 17:00

Part of the Dark Skies Festival

We are a local business that has been operating for 25 years and we would love to introduce you to the wonders of the Yorkshire Dales underground.

The trip involves walking in a stream way, some stooping, some crawling and some optional squeezes. There are some simple climbs, a few deep pools and a waterfall to negotiate too. We will meet you at the parking place nearest the cave and everyone will change into the caving kit at the road head and walk a short distance to the cave before beginning your adventure underground.

You just need a reasonable amount of fitness and flexibility to move through the cave as there is bending and some short crawling sections.

Minimum Age is 8 years old. We are licensed to take children without a parent with them if necessary.
This caving trip is being subsidised through Stories in Stone, a four-year programme of conservation and community projects concentrated on the Ingleborough area. The scheme has been developed by the Ingleborough Dales Landscape Partnership and is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
