Cocoon Cave, Beacon Scar, Yorkshire Dales

I've visited this cave once before, so I'm not sure why I decided to enter it this time round.

The passage is too low to crawl, so it's necessary to wriggle down the passage. After 4 meters, it's possible to stand up in a chamber less than a meter square.

The passage continues to the right in the direction of Cannon Hole, behind a shoulder of rock which blocks further progress.

A narrow gap leads off to the left, too small to follow.

After turning around in the restricted space, it's possible to wriggle back out again.

I like caves very much, but this one would make me claustrophobic. It looks interesting, but I don't think I'd be brave enough to go inside. I've only been in one cave before, on a tour when I was a kid, but I'll always remember it.

This cave makes me remember the cave in the Jackie Chan starred, action-fantasy movie "The Myth"....not an usual Jackie movie,and gives more importance to emotions..

Recently I went to a cave in Cherapunjee, Meghalaya, India. It was 150 meters end to end, and was lighted inside. Even though it was lighted it was scary. I and my wife did it together so we could complete it.
