Ingleton, Ingleborough and the Three Peaks

AboutAccommodationAttractionsMapIngleton Maps and Guides

The village of Ingleton is surrounded by magnificent countryside with caves, waterfalls, and mountains. The Craven Fault crosses the area, and geological and archaeological sites abound.

The historic Yorkshire Dales village of Ingleton is situated at the junction of two rivers. The River Twiss from Kingsdale and River Doe from Chapel-le Dale combine to form the River Greta at Ingleton. Ingleton nestles in the foothills of Ingleborough on the threshold of Yorkshire's beautiful Limestone Dales.

Above ground, glaciation has produced spectacular scars, erratics, limestone pavements, high cliffs and deep dry gorges. Below ground, the limestone region is awash with dramatic underground rivers, stunning potholes and caves. The natural features of the area provide for a host of outdoor activities, and the Ingleton area is a magnet to walkers, climbers, cavers and potholers.

Local attractions include:

  • The underground world of White Scar Cave, Britain's longest show cave
  • The Waterfalls Walk through woodland gorgeswith spectacular waterfall
  • Limestone peaks and scenery, with a direct route for the ascent of
  • The nearby Settle-Carlisle
    railway and the famous
    Ribblehead viaduct

Ingleton has a wide range of accommodation, and is well placed for visiting the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, and the coast at Morecambe and Blackpool.

The A65 Leeds-Lakes road now by-passes Ingleton, which is only 16 miles from Hawes in Wensleydale and a similar distance to Lancaster.

Ingleton lies on one of the principal East-West routes across the Pennines used from prehistoric and Roman times. The remains of an Iron Age fort can be seen on the summit plateau of Ingleborough, at 723 metres (2372 feet), the best known of Yorkshire's Three Peaks. The ascent is by a relatively easy path from the village.
