Reynard's Cave, Dovedale

Reynard's Cave
Taken on Monday's walk through Dovedale, this view of Reynard's Cave, a natural rock arch in the limestone is one of the many spectacular sights in the valley. Legend has it that the cave was named after a local brigand, Reynard, who sheltered therein before the roof of the cave collapsed leaving the natural rock arch.

  1. Thanks for this it is a wonderful place.

  2. When I was about 13 we had to scramble up to this cave on a school geography trip! Getting up was ok, down was a bit more difficult, we slid down on the scree mostly! Dovedale is such a lovely place and I love this photo!

  3. Adrian, particularly nice mid week out of school holidays!
    Louise, Story goes that a horse rider, showing off to his girlfriend, slid down the scree and into the river and was killed! Anyway, it's too steep for me these days.
