"Don't Try This At Home", Alum Pot, 16th June 2000
Sunlight streams down from the entrance to Alum Pot some 150 feet above, from where I have just been lowered, complete with camera and equipment, on the end of a rope tied to a tree! This was whilst filming for "Don't Try This At Home! - Challenge of a Lifetime", when a young lady who suffered from claustrophobia had to work her way through the cave system near Horton-in-Ribblesdale, North Yorkshire. Once she reached the main shaft she then had to climb her way out! Despite not being able to climb all the way out, she was deemed to have succeeded in her challenge, but it took several hours.
