DAY 1: If you can, join us on the arrival day by 1.30 pm for a half day local walk to get to know your fellow travellers and the environment close by. Our plan will be to walk the famous waterfall trail. For those who are unable to arrive by then, join us for dinner at 6.30 pm, after which we will talk through our planned programme. (3.5 hours)
DAY 2: Hike along one of the most scenic sections of the Pennine Bridleway and complete a walking circuit around the valley of Crummackdale. Highlights include a visit to the spectacular limestone pavement for which this area is famous. (6 hours)
DAY 3: From Ingleton Village we walk along the broad valleys of Kingsdale with its bristling limestone crags on its skyline. Easy tracks lead to the entrance of Yordas Cave, which served as a public show-cave in Victorian days (no, we won't go in!!). Ascending onto the moor above the valley we pick up the ancient Turbary Road (a wide stone track) and pass the impressive shake-hole entrances to Jingling Pot and Rowten Pot before descending to our pick-up spot from where our taxi returns us to our hotel. (6 hours)
DAY 4: We'll walk up to Twistleton Scars to join the tracks that make up the 'Pennine Journey' route. Our route gives tremendous views across to Ingleborough, to Whernside, the highest of the 3 peaks, and the famous Ribblehead Viaduct on the Settle to Carlisle Railway (4 hours)
Please note that the above itinerary is subject to weather conditions being favourable. Our aim, above all, is to make the right choice each day so that we enjoy the most appropriate route for the conditions.
For our Yorkshire Dales walking break we have chosen as a base the Wheatsheaf Hotel in Ingleton village. Accommodation is in single occupancy, en-suite rooms and meals are provide in the residents' dining room. The hotel has a welcoming, spacious public bar and beer garden. This is a busy, bustling village has a heated pool in the centre where you can relax after a day of fresh air and exercise.
Hotel postcode: LA6 3AD
To reach Ingleton by public transport, take the train to Clapham (the one in Yorkshire - not London!!). From there, a 4 mile taxi journey brings you to the village.
