As always, use your own judgement but the above sites should help you to make an informed decision (coupled with knowledge of the flooding potential of the intended cave/pothole).

Excellent resource. Might it be worth including the Upper Swale at Park Bridge near Keld for cavers planning trips to Swaledale sites like Crackpot Cave and Cliff Force Cave?

Just a suggestion :)

It's been down for a number of days. This happens from time to time but they usually get it fixed. It is an immensely valuable resource, particularly to cavers and to paddlers.
CPC now have a web cam showing the Ribble at Horton

I find this useful for seeing how much rain has fallen, although it only updates every 6 hours:

The CPC have added a new webcam at Horton showing the conditions in Brants Gill (primarily for the delectation of the bubblers)
There's also a link from the CPC website https://cravenpotholeclub.org/

. . . and I can assure you the "bubblers" are very grateful. This is a really valuable resource.

The link is also now on the Northern Section part of the CDG website.
