Wild swimming
« on: August 07, 2012, 01:42:34 pm »
Having finaly tired of the olympics last night I went channel surfing and stumbled on Wild Swimming just at the start of an item on swimming in caves.
They told us they were in Yorkshire but did not mention the name of the cave. Looked like Birkwith Cave to me. Can anyone confirm this?

Quite why you would be interested in the scenery when you have Dr Alice Roberts in a wetsuit defeats me......
I have a plan so cunning you could pin a tail on it and call it a Weasel.

Repeated last night (c. 40 mins in if you're only interested in the cave - the Bradford are credited):
