Welcome to the Northern Pennine Club website. This site is intended to provide a brief introduction to the club and its activities and also provide some contact information should you wish to make further enquiries about membership or cottage booking.
The NPC is one of the oldest and largest caving clubs in the UK. Founded in 1946 it has been responsible for many of the great caving discoveries in the Yorkshire Dales. Activity continues today, both at home and abroad, with many members actively seeking new passages every week.
Although mainly a caving club the NPC also has many members who never venture underground and we have an active community of climbers, walkers and cyclists.
The NPC has a large base at Greenclose, just outside of Clapham, that provides a focus for its activities and accommodation for both members & guests.
In addition to this site the club has an extensive on-line archive which can be found here.
The club also runs a web based forum for members only at NPC forum.
