The survival expert heads to the Yorkshire Dales to explore the limestone geology of the dramatic pavements, cliffs and caves as well as the wildlife dependent upon it. He meets Ingleborough National Nature Reserve warden Colin Newlands, who introduces him to the extraordinary plant life of Scar Close, and squeezes down a gully in search of the cave spider. Ray teams up with researchers from the University of Leeds to survey the bat population and spends time observing the dipper - a small river bird able to walk underwater.
