Welcome to York University Cave and Pothole club.

Exploring caves all over the world since 1981.

If you want to experience places few people get to see, wander in caverns six times the size of York Minster and abseil down to 300 metres underground, then come and see US! YUCPC is an ever-growing group of friendly cavers who meet every Tuesday & Thursday in the University Sports Hall at 8:00pm. We go caving every weekend, in the Yorkshire Dales, Peak District and sometimes further a field such as Wales and the Mendips. You don’t need to worry about gear as we have all the equipment and clothing you need... read more

Down the Nave, up to Top Waterfall, returned up Maypole inlet. Enjoyable, splashy trip in the streamway. The waterfall had a hell of a lot of force behind it, thanks to the heavy rain at the weekend. There was a ladder visible behind the water, leading to the top. We decided not to investigate as there appeared to be a reasonably high chance of drowning. Wayne was a very helpful leader, falling neck deep into all the pots so that the rest of the group knew exactly which ones to avoid.
