Hi all – quick post to give you some information about the peak in Yorkshire we’ll be climbing at the very start of the summer holidays. This is going to be a good one to bring the little people on – not as taxing as Snowdon or Scafell Pike – but lovely all the same!
We will be walking up Ingleborough on Saturday, 9th July. Ingleborough is the second highest mountain in the Yorkshire Dales, at 723 metres. It is one of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, the other two being Whernside (736 metres) and Pen-y-ghent (694m).
The walk is about 4 hours maximum (we’ll take it slowly as likely to have lots of little people in tow) and takes in some wonderful scenery I am assured by my local experts!
We will be staying near Charlie’s parents who live in Hawkswick, North Yorkshire (near Grassington and Skipton if you look at a map!) and plans are afoot for a celebratory supper at the local pub on the night of Saturday 9th.
Hawkswick is about a 4-5 hour drive from London or you can catch the train (or fly if you’re feeling glam) to Leeds and it’s about one hour from there by car or train.
The start of the walk is in a pretty little village called Clapham which is about 45 minutes from Hawkswick.
We are on the case with B&Bs/pubs for accommodation (which are getting booked up super fast) so if you would like to come please call me or email me or leave a comment here and I can help with more details.
