Langcliffe Pot is a cave system on the slopes of Great Whernside in Upper Wharfedale, about 2 km SSE of Kettlewell in Yorkshire (UK NGR SD996711), and actually some 20 km NNE of Langcliffe village. The cave entrance is at an altitude of 470m. The system has a total surveyed passage length of about 10 km, and a depth of only a little more than 100m. It was explored originally in 1936 and 1954 by the Craven Pothole Club (CPC), extended in 1968 by the Yorkshire Underground Research Team (YURT), and in 1968-70 by the University of Leeds Speleological Association (ULSA).
Notwithstanding its limited depth, a trip into the far reaches of Langcliffe Pot is still rated as one of the more serious undertakings in British caving. A detailed passage description and survey is given in Northern Caves. A survey in relation to the other caves of the Black Keld drainage system, and a detailed discussion of the geology and hydrology, is given in Limestones and Caves of Northwest England, Chapter 22.
