The infamous Millican Daltons cave
October 31st 2018
Make The Hawse End Centre your base to explore this cave and Castle Cragg
Three miles on foot from The Hawse End Centre is the village of Grange. This has two very inviting tea-rooms and is the start point for the walk to Castle Crag, close to the location of Millican Daltons cave. We found the cave by following the general direction of other hikers. It was amazing to think someone lived here every summer for 50 years.
