Guided walks & talks of the Yorkshire Dales – Half Day @ Leaves from Ingleton area
Apr 1 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Guided walks & talks of the Yorkshire Dales - Half Day @ Leaves from Ingleton area

A great way to enjoy the outdoors safely on this guided walk, learning more about the area too.  Book your place now on one of these planned walks. 

Due to the limestone that runs throughout the Yorkshire Dales, we have extensive cave systems across the area, making it one of the major areas for caving in the UK.  However if you fancy staying above ground then a visit to one or two of the three highest peaks in Yorkshire is a wonderful day out. Starting in Ingleton this walk takes you up Ingleborough the highest flat top mountian in Europe at 723m.  You’ll see some excellent examples of the surface limestone pavement with its “clints” (the limestone blocks) and “grikes” (the fissures between). The views from Ingleborough are superb, stretching as far as the west coast and the Lake District, and it is worth walking the short distance to the northern edge of the plateau for a fine view of the famous Ribblehead Viaduct on the Settle Carlisle railway line.

One thing to bear in mind is that Ingleborough can have a cap of cloud. This can appear without warning on an initially clear day. The top of Ingleborough is a strangely disorientating place in cloud/mist. If the cloud does descend, there is a marked drop in temperature, so be prepared! Then depending on the group and the day a option to walk Whernside at 728m is the tallest of the three Yorkshire peaks, with it’s tarns at the higher levels and at the start it gives you the chance to get up close and personal to that masterpiece of Victorian engineering, the Ribblehead railway viaduct. Plus the views from the summit are also magnificent.
