The Yorkshire Dales : God's own country, and in a large part constructed from God's own rock - which contrary to popular belief is not gritstone but limestone.

I have been involved in several digging and exploration projects in the Dales, some of which are documented here. Most of the work has been undertaken with other members of the University of Leeds Speleological Association.

Most of my exploration work has been off the beaten-track - checking out the less frequented locations in the Dales rather than finding extensions in the established systems.
