YORDAS CAVE

Yordas, or Yorda's, Cave (confused it shouldn't be with Joda) is a naturally formed limestone cave in the Yorkshire Dales. It became something of a showcave during the 18th and 19th centuries and is a popular place to visit for walkers and holiday makers now - as well as serious cavers. At times of heavy rainfall it is flooded - a gushing torrent rages through it; but in dry weather it is possible to explore a large chamber with care, where an underground waterfall and the beginnings of stalactites can be seen. It was known to William Wordsworth and JMW Turner. Some say it is named after a giant that once lived there, but sensible, boring, people say that's unlikely. It is situated in Kingsdale, not far from Masongill, and is a few hundred yards from the road.
