Just north of Settle is the very special village of Clapham. It’s a picture-perfect village with a beck running through the middle, which starts high on the slopes of Ingleborough. It’s also the home of the Cave Rescue Association. There’s plenty of car parking in the National Park car park in the village.
Ingleborough Estate’s trail goes through beautiful lakeside woodland up to Ingleborough Cave. The trail, suitable for wheelchairs and prams, it was created to celebrate the work of Reginald Farrer, a plant collector and author, who travelled the world gathering many rare plant species before cultivating them in the area.
