Title: Who took this pic?
Post by: mikeapp93 on August 12, 2019, 01:33:44 pm
Hi all,

I'm trying to find out who took this pic: https://www.facebook.com/NorthYorkshireWeatherUpdates/photos/a.332763830176487/2095989520520567?type=3&sfns=mo (https://www.facebook.com/NorthYorkshireWeatherUpdates/photos/a.332763830176487/2095989520520567?type=3&sfns=mo)

I'm scribbling a book on the Dales and wanted to use it with the right credit and a donation to a charity of their choice.

If it's one of yours let me know!

Mike

I contacted Jack who then put me in contact with a caver at the Craven who told me, via a contact, that he had just shared it.

Fun and games Paul!

I recall sharing that picture on my timeline, from a post by David Lancaster on the Descent Caving Group, the photo was credited to Jill Eccleston. Gives you more people to ask if nothing else  :shrug:

I'm pretty sure the picture was taken by one of Jill's brothers - I've contacted them to see which one it was and passed on the OP's request.

Cheers

It was one of Jill's brothers you are right! We spent a very happy hour in the New Inn yesterday discussing the pic, quick interview and now I have the pic in my possession.

A donation will be made to CRO too.

Many thanks to everybody who helped track Roger down. I am a happy man.

Incidentally, we worked out, based on the dimensions in Northern Caves 2 that Hull Pot would have had a maximum of 29,160,000 litres of water in it that day.

Now obviously, it's not rectangular but staggering all the more!

Thanks to all!
