"Dovecote Gill Cave" . . . . ?

The best time to hear the "glutting" noise at Hurtle Pot is when the water is falling after a moderately high flood. The level varies by about 15 m, occasionally overflowing from the rim of Hurtle Pot (to join the torrent also overflowing from Jingle Pot further up the beck). The best "glutting" noises come when the water level is going down from about 8 m below the overspill point; the sounds can be really quite remarkable.

The Boggart still lives . . . . or is it a CDG member? With some CDG members there's probably not that much difference after all!

Pitlamp:
a.k.a. "Hebblethwaite Gill", with its fine gorge? Or is it different from that one?
