sam_0573Scouts head to the Caves…

Scouts went on a trip to Ingleton, North Yorkshire to try a day of caving in a popular cave system known as the churns. Upper and Lower Long Churn is a popular stop for novice cavers to have a go and see if they like it which is part of Alum Pot. Everyone seemed to be excited and enthusiastic for the day and showed great team building skills. The day was finished with a short cave where scouts ventured by themselves into Wilson’s Cave, closely monitored by the Cave Instructor Miles.

Thanks goes to 3rd Washington Scouts for use of their swanky minibus, complete with bouncy tunes(good music to us old folk) and five socket charger…

Scouts got wet, crawled into the cheese press, crawled though “heaven” as its known and helped each other up the chute’s and water falls found in the caves.
