SD6973 : The Money Tree, Ingleton Waterfalls Trail
taken 4 years ago, near to Ingleton, North Yorkshire, England
Ingleton Waterfalls Trail is a circular walking route which begins and ends in the village of Ingleton. It is claimed (and I wouldn’t argue) that the trail, approximately 8km/5 miles long and with a vertical rise of 554 feet, has some of the most spectacular waterfall and woodland scenery in the north of England. The trail follows a well-defined footpath which runs as close as possible to the edge of the rivers Twiss and Doe. The path includes a large number of steps and it is advisable that visitors wear walking boots or strong shoes.
The trail, which is now managed by the Ingleton Scenery Company Link , was first opened to the public on Good Friday, 11 April 1885 Link following a number of articles in the Lancaster Guardian and other local newspapers about the scenery in and around Ingleton. The resultant public interest led to the creation of the trail in an area which had previously been hidden from view. Paths and bridges were built and the trail opened The presence of Ingleton railway station played a major role in the early success of the trail, attracting visitors from Bradford, Manchester and Leeds (during June 1888, 3840 people visited Ingleton in one day alone).
The trail is on private land and an entrance fee is charged (£7 per adult/£3 per child in 2019) Link .
