One of the Yorkshire Dale's Three Peaks and the second highest at 2,372 feet (732 metres). There are good paths to the top from most directions, the most popular being from Horton in Ribblesdale, Ribblehead, Ingleton and Clapham. The post code given here is that given for Ingleborough Cave near Clapham. Ingleborough's summit is a plateau, once a fort, with views of Whernside, Ribblehead and beyond to the Irish Sea. Features include Ingleborough Cave and Gaping Gill. It is a serious and often strenuous walk to the top of Ingleborough, necessitating proper clothing, footwear as well as a supply of water and something to eat.
The Three Peaks of the Yorkshire Dales (Whernside, Pen-y-Ghent and Ingleborough) are often tackled by the very fit for fun or charity in a time of +/- 12 hours covering a distance of approx 24 miles.
