Ingleton is a gorgeous little village in the Yorkshire Dales with magnificent scenery and home to Ingleborough, one of the highest peaks in the dales. Even if you’re not up for proper hike there are still some lovely walks for all the family.
We considered doing the famous Ingleton Waterfalls Trail which boasts some of the most staggering waterfall and woodland scenery in the North of England, but with a family ticket costing £16 we decided to just head for the village and see what walks we could find there.
We were with some other friends and their children and parked at the Community Centre starting our walk at the Play Park down by the beck. The children were able to have a play whilst having our lunch (we left it quite late in the day so we could have a lazy Bank Holiday morning!)
From the play park, we headed up the hill following the road to the disused quarry. There were a few sheep around so the dog had to be kept on the lead, and we took it quite leisurely so the children could run around. There was even a rock face with hand holes for any brave person who wants to have a climb!
Half way along there was a lime kiln which the children (and daddies) enjoyed investigating.
We finished the walk by going down to the beck to let the dog and children have a paddle before setting off home.
