Jubille Cave, there are 3 emtrances, one is to the right just out of shot

Looking intio the cave, you can explore for about 10 metres .

Next stop Victoria Cave

The entrance to Victoria cave, it's massive inside

The steep scramble up to the next cave, Attamire Cave. It's a long way up, and on arrival, pretty disappointing, although a torch would have helped.

Heading off back towards Langcliffe

Superb Dales scenery

Looking back to Attamire cave - right at the top of that hill !!!

And another cave, this one is called Bivi Cave, has it has probably been used many times for shelter. No bigger than a tent inside
