Various activities in the Yordas Cave and Wood area, Kingsdale

1 December 2009

Volunteer cavers from Huddersfield University, Natural England volunteers from the Ingleborough National Nature Reserve and members of the Bradford Pothole Club recently spent a day in January having a good old rubbish clear out in Yordas Cave and Wood. Four bags of rubbish were collected, plus some old ironmongery, and some of the unsightly soot from old candle stubs was removed from the cave walls in Yordas Cave. The stock-proofing fence around Yordas Pot was improved and the wall at the top of Yordas Wood was repaired (in part). All in all a good day, and the weather was kind, so thanks to all concerned. The work was undertaken in agreement with the landowner, and Natural England purchased the materials.
