The Caves of Ribblehead by Steve Warren

The Caves of Ribblehead (16 March 2008). 

With Mike and Philip, the Leader master-minded the exploration of numerous parts of the Cuddy Gill, Runscar and Thistle Cave systems. Something in the order of seventeen entrances/exits were variously entered or exited with only the last one, the exit from Thistle Lower Cave, entailing a minor ducking. All this left several other caves for another day. Contrary to gloomy forecasts, the day was fine and dry and quite cool out in the open.

Ribblehead is a brilliant place for a fine bit of pottering about where only a helmet and lamp and a couple of good mates are needed to make a great day out.
