Testing the deep pool for depth. Anything to be kept dry is in the rucksack. The water is not very warm.

Wow, is that a winch into gaping gill? I remember moseying over Ingleborough and peering down into that darkness and wondering what was in there. In all the darkness it sure looked a long way dooooooooown............

Yes, it's a winch!
On the last week in August, every August, the Craven Pothole Club organise a winch. Bradford Pothole Club do it in May each year.
It is a very very long way down......
