Half day guided walk and talk in the Dales – 1st Apr 2019

Martin and Liz started the day at Ingletsport Café, before heading out on this sunny, but chilly day.

Leaving the Café at 9:30, we headed up to Storrs common, home of quarrying from century’s gone past. Myths and lime kilns. Plus some intro climbing and abseiling venues.

Then on past the working Quarry, gritstone pits, from the viewing gallery you get a true sense of the size, scale and depth of the hole. From the otherside of the valley, the size is lost a little.

Ingleton Quarry – From the viewing platform


Down through the fields and over Beezley falls stepping stones. When the water level is low or normal, this is a good route, there have been many times where the stones disappear under the water line by a good 30cm or so.

By 10:30, we are walking across the top of the waterfalls walk, with views of Twistleton scar end. Heading for the start of Kingsdale. A stop on the bench, to take on some refreshments and enjoy the view over the forest of bowland.

Only the trained eye can see the ‘elephant’ in the distance.

Through the meadows and down to the edge of the old railway line and Ingleton’s Impressively hidden Viaduct.

A great mornings walk, with so much to see. Back in Inglesport Café for a well deserved Coffee and cake by 1pm
