SD6680 : Easegill Beck

taken 13 years ago, 4 km from Barbon, Cumbria, Great Britain

Easegill Beck
Easegill Beck
The water from the headwaters of Easegill Beck sinks into the limestone to form England's most extensive cave system, leaving the stream bed normally dry. In flood, however, a torrent of water runs here, keeping the gritstone cobbles free of soil and vegetation. A path leads from Bull Pot Farm to the beck just downstream of this photo, and cavers must now walk up the beck to reach the entrances from which the upper part of the system can be explored.
