Stump Cross Caverns

Greenhow, PATELEY BRIDGE, Harrogate, HG3 5JL

Discovered by the brothers Mark and William Newbould in 1860, Stump Cross Caverns have been an attraction for visitors since 1863, when one shilling was charged for entrance. Among the few limestone show caves in Britain, these require no special clothing, experience or equipment, as walkways are gravel and concrete and floodlighting is provided. Stalagmites, stalactites and calcite precipitation make for an eerie day out, west of Pateley Bridge.
