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 is a film of Malham Village taken at the town crossroads. There is a pub on the corner, and children are sitting on the side of a stone bridge. Two tour buses cross over the bridge.

Two people are climbing over rocks and up a hill by Malham Cove. At the bottom of the cove, a man goes through some of the rock. There is footage of the surrounding landscape.
