A popular challenge for walkers in the Yorkshire Dales is to tackle the three highest peaks - Whernside, Pen-y-ghent and Ingleborough - in one day. That's all well and good, but it fails to give each distinct hill the attention it deserves.
Ingleborough is a fine walk on its own and the best way to enjoy the peak is to walk right over it. Starting at Ribblehead station, tucked in between the three peaks, this walk goes over the summit before dropping down to Horton in Ribblesdale station.
