Description

In the summer of 1953, Eli Simpson set out to make a film for the British Speleological Association called The Birth of a Yorkshire River or The Waters of Mawn. The film collection is comprised of rushes he shot at locations such as Ingleborough Cave, Malham Cove, and Hull Pot, all located in the Yorkshire Dales, and many of the films include both interior and exterior footage of the caves.

This film features a woman walking in the countryside by some of the streams which flow through the landscape. It appears to be a windy day, and the woman's coat can be seen blowing in the wind. This is possibly near Weathercote Cave.
