Dark Tunnels

Also out in Langdale, this is a great activity to couple with a ghyll scramble or a walk taking in the famous Slater's Bridge. 


The dark tunnels are otherwise known as Cathedral Cave, a network of interlinked quarries above Little Langdale, with a huge main chamber that stands at 40 feet high. Some tunnels require lighting, so we take torches to explore. It's like a caving experience without having to crawl through passages on your belly or get wet!

Fun fact: Film aficionados might recognise Cathedral Quarry from the movie Snow White and the Huntsman!
