Dark Skies Festival 15th – 21st February 2016

Join us on our Introductory Evening Caving Trip on Monday 15th February and come out to a night sky for the walk back down to the vehicles. No light pollution and with hopefully a clear view of the sky looking up towards Ribblehead and across to Penyghent. Booking essential so email or phone us now to express an interest or book.

Lots of other interesting things going on during the week too.

Paul Rose on BBC Pennine Way programme goes caving with us.

Sean and Paul Rose after filming for BBC Pennine Way.Back in late November we received a call from the BBC who were producing the Pennine Way programme currently showing on BBC 1 in the North on Fridays at 7.30 pm.  Dave had been talking to Lucy from the production team earlier in the year but we understood there might not be enough room for a caving trip so thought that was that.  The call in November was to ask us if we could take Paul Rose the presenter caving in a few days. They realised, as they began filming, there was enough great material to fill another episode to make it last for 4 weeks.  Dave was on holiday so we asked Sean Whittle, who works with us regularly, if he was available and luckily he was. A star is born!

It is a great series and is available on the BBC iPlayer as well as still running for another 2 weeks on BBC1. We understand in the future it will be showing nationwide on BBC2.

Here is the link to the episode with Sean in and it also includes great footage of Malham Show, Climbing at Malham Cove, Pen-y-ghent Cafe and the Three Peaks.  Well worth a watch.

We have holiday evening caving trips that individuals, families and small groups can join in, you can join a course or you can book your own instructor for a day and time convenient for you. We also run navigation courses for those of you that might want to tackle the Pennine Way or maybe just parts of it.

Christmas Present Ideas

Christmas Gift Voucher Example

 

I do not like to start talking about Christmas too soon but we sold our first voucher yesterday and had an inquiry about another the day before so I guess it really is that time of year again.

If you are looking for a present for someone who likes the outdoors then one of our vouchers could be the answer. The different events are suitable for a range of abilities and ages from 8 upwards*.

You can choose from any of our activities and either pick an advertised date or leave it open for the recipient to book when they have checked their diary. It can be an event where they can bring their friends or a place on one of our many advertised open courses. Navigation Skills days or an NNAS Course. A Guided walk  for half, full day or longer.   Caving from 3 hours Introductory Trips to learning Vertical Caving (SRT).  Climbing or a place on one of our Get On Track Days.  The Vertical caving (SRT) days are popular at this time of year as they take place in our barn so can go ahead whatever the weather.

If you cannot see an event or date you want then just get in touch.

*Some of our courses are not suitable for younger people so if you are unsure please just drop us a line or give us a ring.
