Welcome to York University Cave and Pothole club.

Exploring caves all over the world since 1981.

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
