Catrigg Force and Jubilee Caves

Approx 6 miles - Sun 30th Oct 2016
A walk from the village of Langcliffe to Catrigg Force and then on to the caves of Jubille, Victoria and Attamire before returning through some of the best Limestone scenery in The Dales

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
