Long Churn Caves (Alum Pot)


Long Churn can become very dangerous very quickly during heavy rain.



The caves of Alum Pot area (including Alum Pot, Long Churn, Diccan Pot, Borrins Moor Cave and others nearby) are either on, or often approached via private land and a small fee (one pound per person) is payable at Selside Farm. PLEASE NOTE; Since these caves reopened after the Covid-19 lockdown there is now a collection box positioned by the front door; please put your correct fee into the box without introducing yourself to the residents. It is advisable that just one person from the group enters the farmyard to make payment. Park responsibly on the green lane on the north side of Selside leading to the caves.

This cave is NOT on access land. Click here for more information.
