Members lead a previous Try Caving trip underground

A caving club is offering outdoor enthusiasts the chance to venture underground.

The Yorkshire Subterranean Society is again offering a Try Caving weekend to anyone who would like to see the fascinating world beneath the feet of walkers in the Yorkshire Dales.

The weekend is aimed at novices with no previous experience, or those who tried the activity in the past and want to get back underground.

The club, based at Helwith Bridge in Ribblesdale, will provide equipment and accommodation for the event on 12 and 13 November at its base, conveniently situated just across the road from a pub.

Would-be potholers are welcome to stay either for the weekend or for just a day.

The Yorkshire Subterranean Society has been in existence for 47 years and its base is a converted school building south of Horton in Ribblesdale, in the heart of limestone Dales scenery, in the shadow of Pen-y-ghent.

Four years ago, grough joined the club for a day in Long Churn Cave.
