Weathercote Cave (Chapel-le-Dale)



Historically, access here has been problematic. However following a change of ownership in 2019 the CNCC confirmed that the new owner (Andrew Braithwaite) is happy to allow cavers access providing they contact him in advance to arrange permission. This is because the cave is very close to the house.

Andrew can be contacted by email (symbols replaced by words to avoid spam):

Andrew [-at-] dalecontractors [-dot-] co [-dot-] uk

Please avoid turning up at the house unannounced.
