The Three Peaks of Yorkshire – Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-ghent, – are riddled with underground passages and caves, of which one of the most famous is White Scar Caves. Formed by the erosive action of an underground stream on the soluble limestone rock over thousands of years, the cave system runs for nearly a mile into the heart of Ingleborough, narrowing into claustrophobiainducing tunnels and opening into vast caverns of stalactites. The guided tour of White Scar Caves is one of the main tourist attractions in the Yorkshire Dales and visitors now number over 60,000 a year.
