The caves at Stumps Cross were discovered in 1860 by miners who were looking for lead seams in the Yorkshire Dales. Although they didn’t find any lead, they did find the natural caverns which you can see today. Miners often didn’t see any commercial value in the caves. However, a man named William Newbould saw they could be a profitable enterprise, and opened the caves to the public at a cost of 1 shilling per visit.

There are two other show caves in the Yorkshire Dales to visit: <a title=’Ingleborough Show Cave’ href=’http://www.ingleboroughcave.co.uk/’ target=’_blank’>Ingleborough Cave</a> and <a title=’White Scar show cave’ href=’http://www.whitescarcave.co.uk’ target=’_blank’>White Scar Caves</a>.
