Jabz Cave on Fremington Edge, Swaledale
|Fremington Edge is the limestone
cliff to the north of the River Swale opposite the village of Grinton.
The top photograph shows the village of Grinton, the tower of St. Andrew's Church may be seen & on the very left edge is Upper Fremington.
The other three photographs are taken in different seasons from down by the river.
The three telephoto photographs taken
from by the river show Jabz Cave. As is shown by the photograph taken from
above, it is not a cave, but a gap in the edge. A dry stone wall
has been built in it to form a lookout place. The centre photograph shows the seat.
The OS map labels 'Jabz cave', but he is listed, with more information in the Bulmer's Directory of 1890 on the GENUKI site, © Colin Hinson, (scroll down to Reeth Grocers and shopkeepers). It lists him as Raisbeck Jabez, a Reeth shopkeeper, printer, stationer, bookseller and Darlington and Stockton Times agent.
I will be grateful for any more information about him.
