I announced previously (in June here) that I was not a caveman so when I saw the Jenolan Caves tour bus in this week's prompt.
I knew I could not compete with the Aussies as we are staring a whitewash in the face. I decided to come back home to Yorkshire where they still know a thing or two about cricket and to go caving instead.
|White Scar Caves & Ingleborough in the Yorkshire Dales|
What are now Britain's longest show caves were discovered in August 1923 by Christopher Long and J H Churchill. The summit of Ingleborough is some 4 km away.
How can you get there?
|By Tour Bus of course|
Once inside the caves there are many spectacular sights such as this:

To make you realise how insignificant we are you can always consult the clock.
Even the devil will have been there before us and may lick you to death.
|The Devil's Tongue - White Scar Caves|
While in Yorkshire you do not have to restrict your visit to these caves under Ingleborough in the Chapel-le-Dale Valley in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
You could also take a look at:
|Stump Cross Caverns|
The caverns make up a limestone cave system between Wharfedale and Nidderdale in North Yorkshire. Their name derives from Stump Cross which in ancient times marked the limit of Knaresborough forest.
So in my Yorkshire tour I have found some caves and a bus, As for men in white coats.
For other prompts all I rely on Clarke Gable
However I suggest that you don't walk away like him before you have visited Sepia-Saturday-209.
