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 interior footage of a cave. It opens as one of the cavers is examining some of the formations inside. Two men, dressed in hats with lights, climb up in the cavern. There is also another group of cavers that tour through the cavern.
