Events by Date Order
Join us on a journey above and below Ingleborough, one of the Yorkshire Dales National Parks famous Three Peaks, for a 450 million year journey through time. On this guided walk, lead by a local expert caver and published author, you will explore some of the UK’s finest limestone scenery.
Our bespoke route was put together specifically for this event, and will take you to many sites of significant geological interest including a major unconformity, the Craven Fault system, Ingleborough Cave, Trow Gill gorge, Gaping Gill and other fascinating lesser known features.
This event offers a unique opportunity to learn, from a caver’s perspective, how the Ingleborough district and its magnificent cave systems have been created and sculpted by nature, including several ice ages. This rare opportunity to explore a fascinating geological story is intended for the interested lay person and geology students. Those under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an appropriate adult. Expect to walk about 7 miles in typical outdoor terrain, with the possibility of an extension for those who wish.
Join us at Ingleborough Cave in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park for one of our unique evening photography sessions. These are designed for those wanting to spend time in Ingleborough Cave taking photographs and getting to grips with the unique and challenging photographic conditions underground. Please note that these sessions are not tutorials.
One of our local guides will lead you as you follow in the footsteps of the early Victorian explorers on a journey spanning 350 million years of geology and history, and they will also point out some of the spectacular formations that you may later wish to photograph. You will then be left to photograph at your leisure, leaving plenty of time to get those killer shots.
The sessions last 3 hours and 45 minutes, and the meeting time is specified next to the dates below. The first 30 minutes will be spent on a tour with one of our local guides, then you are free to photograph at your leisure. If you do not wish to use the full time allocation this isn’t a problem, you can leave when you have finished.
