A short drive from Ingleton, you will find Ingleborough Cave,
Ingleborough Cave, in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, was first discovered in 1837 by brave Victorian explorers who drained away a lake and went on to discover 500 metres of previously unexplored passages delving deep beneath Ingleborough mountain, with only candles to guide them! Today, the cave is well lit, and you can follow in the footsteps of those pioneers on an awe-inspiring voyage of discovery! Aconcrete footpath leads visitors past breath-taking stalactites, stalagmites and flowstones, along enchanting passages brought to life by formations and artefacts dating back millions of years.
The cave is reached via the beautiful woodland of Ingleborough Estate Nature Trail. The trail is the gateway to some of the U.K’s most stunning limestone scenery including Trow Gill gorge, Gaping Gill pothole, limestone pavements, the Norber Erratics and ultimately the summit of Ingleborough, one of the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks. Alfred Wainwright, the esteemed guidebook author and illustrator, considered this the standout walk in the Yorkshire Dales and described this route up Ingleborough as “the finest of all, a classic”.
Dogs more than welcome, providing they are kept on a lead.
