Austwick Beck Head

Austwick Beck Head, Crummackdale, near Austwick Looking inside Austwick Beck Head cave - note the spider's web!

Austwick Beck rises at Austwick Beck Head in Crummackdale.

This is the main resurgence for the streams entering potholes on the Allotment on the southern flanks of Ingleborough. At the base of the porous Great Scar Limestone the water meets impermeable rock, and is forced to the surface following its underground journey.

[N.B. For more information on the area's caves and potholes, please see caving and potholing in the Yorkshire Dales].
