Gaping Gill In The News

Gaping Gill in the Yorkshire Dales featured in the news recently, as Sky News reported on the opening of Britain’s largest cavern; the Yorkshire Dales National Park is preparing to open the cave to the public.

The cavern is seldom open to the public, with only two dates a year being available to go down in to the massive cave system, if you are brave enough and don’t mind heights; it is 110m from the top to the bottom…and you are lowered down via a rather precarious looking – but entirely safe – chair mechanism.

A couple of years ago Sara and I hiked up Ingleborough, and we happened to have chosen one of days that the cavern was open; and as you can tell by the image, there were a lot of people milling around, and it was very popular.

And look out for a first hand account write-up of what it’s like to enter the largest cavern in Britain, as Hike.Mountain.Trail’s very own Pingu (Jane Carrigan) has actually DONE IT…and there may just be some piccies too!
