Standing at 723m or 2372 ft Ingleborough is the second highest mountain in Yorkshire. Along the northern and eastern edges of the plateau the remains of a wall, once believed to have been a Roman military camp but now known to be an Iron Age hill fort can be found. On a clear day the views from the top are truly breathtaking and well worth pausing to look at.
Pen-y-Ghent is the smallest of Yorkshire’s Three Peaks standing at 694 m or 2277 feet. The ascent begins from the pretty Dales village of Horton-In-Ribblesdale and is approximately 3.1 miles in distance.
