Welcome to York...
birthplace and home of YUCPC, and capital of North Yorkshire, the county which boasts some of the biggest and best caves in Britain. These are dotted throughout our weekend playground, the Yorkshire Dales National Park, a beautiful rugged landscape of rolling hills, limestone escarpments, deep green valleys and picture postcard villages. On an equally important note are the endless traditional country pubs serving some of the finest real ales, and of course Bernie’s Café and Inglesport, serving some of the yummiest and greasiest breakfasts in the land to get you in the mood for some caving!
We have been caving in the Yorkshire Dales for over thirty years, however, we also organize regular trips to the UK’s other caving areas, including regular yearly visits to the Peak District, South Wales (Brecon Beckons) and the Mendip Hills in Somerset. We also try not to neglect some of the lesser well known caving regions such as North Wales and the North Yorkshire Moors. Most of our Yorkshire Dales caving trips are centred on the beautiful village of Ingleton, famous for not only caving, but also many other outdoor pursuits.
We have expanded our membership in recent years, to include around thirty regular members active in the club: Large enough for there to be trips almost every weekend and a wealth of experience to run things smoothly, but not so large as to compromise our proud reputation as an extremely close and friendly group. We welcome anyone interested in trying out something different and exciting, no matter whether you have any prior experience!
