A video wezzit (Yorkshire Dales)
« on: March 26, 2021, 08:58:21 pm »


Stumbled across this random video and was wondering where it is. Anyone recognise it?
Badly filmed so a bit painful; to watch.

My guess is Buckhaw Brow Cave (above Giggleswick) but I've not been in there for donkeys years, so not sure as my memory's a bit rusty.

based on the pictures in this link I'm inclined to think you're bang on: https://dalesrocks.org.uk/geological-processes/cave-formation/giggleswick-scar-caves/

The last minute and a half or so shows the road right nearby as well as looking back to the entrances which are remarkably similar.

Had no idea there was caves there at all, might have a wee wander round next time I'm up there, looks like a Helwith Bridge to these caves to Elaine's tea room walk could be on the cards!
All views are my own and not that of the BCA or any clubs for which I'm a member of.

I'd agree Pitlamp, the cave at 6mins in the video does look very like Buckhaw Brow Upper Cave

Agree with Beardy, at 6 mins in, video entrance looks like this of Buckhaw Caves (if pic works).

We were there about a week ago and agree with the diagnosis.

Thanks all; I was right then (for once!).   ;)
