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.

You don’t need to worry about gear as we have all the equipment and clothing you need... read more
