Stump Cross is a natural cavern system. While it has been made as easy as possible to get around, some parts are a little tricky to traverse. Keep an eye out for low ceilings, narrow passageways and a few areas with uneven flooring.

That said, there are designated walkways to follow and the caves are well-lit throughout. If you're looking for an unusual day out in Yorkshire and you don't mind a spot of adventure, you'll love every second.
