Ingleton Middle School

1 March 2009

Ingleton Middle School assisted the project by visiting Ingleborough Show Cave in February to undertake some cave conservation monitoring. The students assessed the condition of features of scientific interest within the show cave. The results that they gathered were compared with those gathered by a different Year 8 group in the previous year. It was interesting to note that the observations were very similar, and there was very good agreement between the two sets of feature scores and the students' comments. Thanks to the owner of Ingleborough Cave and our cave tour guide for facilitating the visit and for making our visit so fascinating.
