Stump Cross Caverns Outdoors
Stump Cross Caverns is one of Britain's premier show caves, located in Nidderdale on the border of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
The formation of Stump Cross Caverns began millions of years ago, when the area which is now the Yorkshire Dales was covered by oceans. Sediment from the ocean floor would eventually form limestone, the basic material from which the caves are made. The caves themselves began to form as the limestone was eroded by weak acid rain, created when carbon dioxide from the mixed with the precipitation to form carbonic acid.
Stump Cross Caverns is located on the B6265 between Pateley Bridge and Grassington in the Yorkshire Dales. During the Summer months, a bus service is available from Grassington and Pately Bridge which passed by Stump Cross Caverns.
