THE walk to Ingleborough from Clapham has been named amongst the top best mountain walks in the UK.

The Sunday Times included the route in a list of seven best mountain walks for a weekend away, alongside Quiraing circuit, Skye, Highland; Vale of Edale circuit, Peak District, Derbyshire; and Mosedale Horseshoe, Lake District, Cumbria.

In the article, the newspaper says how author and walker Alfred Wainwright called the route from Clapham “the finest of all, a classic”, adding: "Since then, the second-highest peak in the Yorkshire Dales has improved thanks to the Wild Ingleborough conservation project.

"You’ll walk to discover a greatest hits of Dales scenery, including Ingleborough Cave and Trow Gill gorge; superb views over broad-shouldered, muscular hills from the summit; then limestone pavement at Sulber Nick."

The most popular route to Ingleborough from Clapham is via the Ingleborough Estate Nature Trail, which includes a cafe and the show cave. Find out more at:
