Flooding blocks entrance to Devis Hole

We have received news that following the serious flooding to hit Swaledale in late July, access to Devis Hole Mine and its caves is not currently possible. This is because a large amount of debris has blocked the entrance shaft. Regaining access is likely to be a major activity but work is planned. Check back here for more details:
