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 includes footage of the interior of Ingleborough Cave. A man and two women talk through the caverns. There is a stream running through the cave and boulders on either side. They walk through the stream and climb on the surrounding rocks.
