Gaping Gill is the largest underground cave chamber in Britain. It’s often said, without exaggeration, that this dramatic chamber is big enough to fit a cathedral. It is so big that there has been an attempt to fly a hot air balloon inside the cave.

The vertical main shaft from the surface to the floor of the chamber is about 98m deep and normally contains a substantial waterfall, the route by which the surface stream, Fell Beck, finds its way to the chamber floor.

Join Craven Pothole Club and descend by winch to the chamber floor.

Dates: 14 – 21st August – excluding bank holiday weekend.

Time: Register each day before 8.00am. Winching begins at 9.00am

Cost: £15.00 per descent
