Gaping Gill
A huge naturally ocurring cave on the southern slopes of Ingleborough. It is 344 feet deep, with a volume similar to that of York Minster.

Fell Beck falls into the cave at the mouth, creating the highest unbroken waterfall in England. A winch is set up at the opening every year at Spring Bank and August Bank Holidays by local potholing clubs to allow general menbers of the public to descend to the bottom.
