Limestone cave discovered in 1837 containing bones dating back 130,000 years, including elephant and hyena. It was used by man and a hibernating brown bear 11,000 years ago and for unknown purposes, possibly a shrine, in Roman times. Several other caves nearby. Post code is for Settle Market Place, one of several good starting points to walk to the cave.

NB You can only visit this cave by walking to it.  The terrain is easy/rocky and fairly steep.
