Upper Wharfdale Fell Rescue AssocitionFor over 60 years the U.W.F.R.A. has been rescuing people and animals from the caves and fells around Wharfedale, Nidderdale, Littondale and Mid-Airedale.

The majority of its work involves attending incidents involving people or animals in difficulty in caves, potholes, mine shafts, on fells, crags or anywhere not accessible to the normal Emergency Services.

Rescuing exhausted and injured cavers and fell walkers who are lost or have broken bones is more the norm. The Association’s activities also involve helping local farmers, usually with, livestock stranded on crags, in mine shafts, rivers or snow.
