An Extra weekend has been added due to the demand. Now available 8th & 9th March
Armed with a hard hat, torch and sensible shoes you can explore this little hidden gem which has been here for 10 thousand years, since the last Ice Age. The gorge limestone is so special that it is graded as a SSSI – a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The walk through the caves takes you past lots of attractions that we think are some of the most beautiful and unique parts of the Yorkshire Dales.
