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 Malham Cove shot from the bottom of the cove. A man is smoking on a rock which is in the middle of a shallow stream. Two people are standing near the bottom of the cove. There is also footage of the surrounding countryside and two peole walking on the hills.
