Observations made by the original explorers of Boreham Cave, a partly-submerged cave system on the northeastern flank of Littondale in the Yorkshire Dales, UK, have been augmented by recent studies of aspects such as overall cave morphology, geological and topographical setting, scallop geometry, sediment lithology, form and provenance, and speleothem ages. Consideration of the expanded dataset has enabled development of an interim cave development model for Boreham Cave itself, and supports speculation regarding its relationship to documented events during the Quaternary and with other cave systems in the wider area.
