The Yorkshire Subterranean Society caving club in North Yorkshire celebrates its 50th Anniversary on the 18th October 2014 in Settle. As part of the celebrations the caving club will also open their new training facility that secured Olympic legacy funding from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities fund.

The Yorkshire Subterranean Society received £20,000 National Lottery funding to upgrade the facilities at their clubhouse, to provide a specialised rope training facility for use by all cavers. The new facility is a two-storey-high extension on the side of our existing building providing a warm, dry area with an array of platforms, bolts and beams allowing up to 6 cavers at a time to train and practice the rope work needed for safe, modern caving, ranging from the most basic through to advanced rescue techniques.
