Capstan Winch Training


Well-known member
Six members of CNCC underwent training in the safe use of Capstan Winch on Monday 25th Feb 2019 at Colt Park, Chapel le Dale.

The CNCC now have a petrol capstan winch thanks to the Stories in Stone Project. It is available to any CNCC members for conservation works above ground (provided they have a trained / competent person with them).

This project is part of Stories in Stone, a scheme of conservation and community projects concentrated on the Ingleborough area. The scheme was developed by the Ingleborough Dales Landscape Partnership, led by Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

A big thank you to Andrew Hinde and everyone who took part.
