I saw 6 straight away. I can see 4 as well now that I've looked properly.

Been rather busy at work the last few days and been missing my lunch breaks, so not sat down with these yet. Maybe tonight while I'm waiting for my Starless River home delivery service  :)

I haven’t been there.

It’s also the name of something else more well known to a wider audience. A possibly even less well washed audience in my experience.

No 8. Is spelled correctly before anyone asks, it featured in Descent several issues ago, though I admit, it's a cave a lot of you on here would not have been down, it's not a small cave though.

A bigger problem with that one is given a choice between the pub and the cave, it might hard to summon enthusiasm for the latter to be honest. What am I missing?

To me Dales, means anything north of me, but south of Scotland. Basically anything in NC1 - 3. I guess I should have just called this northern caves but that could include Peak, with that term. Thinking about it some NC caves are actually south of me, but there not limestone, but don't worry all these are north of Rawtenstal.

Going to post the answers Friday (provided I don't forget!)
