The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at Stump Cross Caverns in Yorkshire. About a quarter of the known four miles of the caverns are open to the public. Fossilised bones of bison, wolverine and reindeer have been found in the caves that were formed 500,000 years ago, when the ocean covered the land. I used to love visiting these caves as a child with my grandfather and mother, both of whom would spin stories around the strange formations of the stalactites and stalagmites. There is a story that one of the explorers found and underground lake in the caverns, but sealed the entrance when the owners refused him a share of the profits. There are still caverns yet to be explored… who knows what may yet be found.
