In Knaresborough, in Yorkshire, sits Mother Shipton's Cave. Folks there have been charging admission for nearly 400 years, and the star of the show is a "petrifying well". A few folk legends do actually turn out to be true.

Mother Shipton's Cave: www.mothershipton.co.uk/ - thanks to all the team there, and especially to John!

Thanks to all the team at Mother Shipton's Cave, and in particular to John, who was lovely to work with! Also, I'm very glad that I got my drone license.

Honestly it kinda makes me angry that you have to pay to go there. Just something about how theses interesting places are always commercialized now so there's nothing left to discover and you've got to pay to experience it. I have no interest in the attraction itself however, but idk. Just something about the commercialization bothers me.

A teddy takes 3 months to turn to stone in the cave. It takes about half that time in a teenage boy's bedroom.

please please do a video on youtuber Max Fosh who has hidden a briefcase somewhere in the uk with 10000 pounds. It would be so interesting to see you solve it and you could send your answer to max and then once the public figure it out we could watch how you did.

How do the laws of physics prove we cant tell the future and make prophecies? now dont get me wrong Im no palm reader or a prothet, i was just curious?.
Dill Stevens
Dill Stevens 3 күн мурун
Idk about laws of physics, but physics in general proves we cannot tell the future or make prophecies. There is an incomprehensible amount of things you would have to be able to know to truly predict the future. And those amount of things can quickly snowball and cause unexpected things to happen, aka the Butterfly Effect.

Got a child at 15, married to a carpenter, having "visions" and "prophecies", talking about the ned of the world sounds to me like someone just altered (a lot) the story of St. Mary and put some extra things here and there

This seems like a _super_ British topic to me. Edit: it also seems a lot like something that would fit well into Pixar’s _Brave_ , although a small portion of that thought may be due to the historian’s accent; I don’t fully know.

I grew up here and honestly, Mother Shipton’s Cave is an over priced place for what is essentially a pool/well you can look at and say “Wow”, a standard play park for kids and a walk through a very small woodland - that’s it!

Here's a video idea. Why do the British pronounce many words entirely unlike how they are spelled? You already visited one place like that Torpenhow. Then there's Bestwick, famous for pottery, and going by Antiques Roadshow it's pronounced bezzeg or bessick.

I went there in about 1972 when I was at primary school. I must have only been about 8 yrs old 😁. Long coach ride from Colchester. The coach was old then, I recall the long hills, the coach engine would scream as it struggled up the hills, smoke used to come up through the floor 😂😂😂

I went there for a day out in 1998 with my boyfriend. We hired a boat, had ice cream and of course visited the cave. One of the tunes we had on in the car on the way home was Perfect Day. It was. We broke up eventually and married other people but I have a lovely memory of that day 😊

Last time I went there was a bicycle in the pool of water at the bottom and it actually worked a little on it. Also I believe the little lips on the cliff face aren't lips of the rock its actually hats that have been there for years and years and years that have been completely covered and become part of the actual wall (or that's what I was told at least).

I extremely don't like the closed mindedness about seeing the future. Other than that, it's a great video! Unless you can completely disprove something with 100% accuracy and precision, you shouldn't claim it as a definite false.
Dill Stevens
Dill Stevens 3 күн мурун
I extremely don't like irrational nonsense like "seeing the future". It has never been proven to be a thing or even worked ever, the closet thing to it is random guesses that turned out to be true (aka "prophecies"). It is perfectly reasonable to call something false if you are able to disprove it even with 60% accuracy, and if it has never been proven.
