Incident 43/2018 – Jul. 13th Fri 21.30 Stock Pot(?), Ingleborough Common, Ingleton, North Yorkshire – Animal Rescue

A sheep was reported to be stranded, about 5m down, in a pot somewhere above High Leys, on Ingleborough. The farmer who reported it offered a guide, to locate it, if CRO would rescue it the following morning.  Three members, In a CRO Land Rover, followed their guide up to the Gritstone Pot area, then explored on foot, before finding a lamb in a lesser-known pot-hole, near Gritstone Pot (overlooking Crina Bottom).  The lamb was rescued and released. Our thanks to John Dawson, of Newby (he of TV’s ‘The Yorkshire Dales and the Lakes’ fame) for recovering CRO 1 from its sphagnum sojourn. His reward will be a free CRO mug (with tea) at the Clapham Street Fair on Saturday 28th July.
