Ingleborough, the second highest peak in the the Yorkshire Dales three peaks, rises up above the village of Ingleton. It has an unmistakeable profile and is a favourite of mine, and not just because I am lucky enough to live at the foot of this great hill.
It has the ice ages to thank for its isolated position, human habitation and agriculture have long since kept its slopes clear of trees. It is skirted by limestone pavements, laid down in prehistoric oceans, which have been weathered by millennia of ice, and rainfall resulting in the crazy pavements, sink holes, and caves. Its flat summit was once home to the Brigantes, whose hut circles are still visible if you know where to look. The Romans passed this way, traveling up the valley now know as as Chapel-le-Dale and onwards towards Bainbridge in Wensleydale via the Cam High Street.
A new series of greeting cards and postcards will soon be available to buy in the village using some of the images I've captured of this special place.
Those photographs depicted here, and the others of Ingleborough, can be seen here in my gallery and are available to purchase, why not take a look. Click here.....
