Chapel-le-Dale church Ingleborough viewed from Chapel-le-Dale

Chapel-le-Dale is a small village nestling in the eponymous valley between Ingleton and Ribblehead in the heart of Yorkshire's famous "Three Peaks" area.

The village itself takes its name from St. Leonard's Chapel (pictured above left) and which was painted by the great British landscape artist J.M.W. Turner

The nearby Hill Inn is a starting point for the ascent of Ingleborough, while back in the village itself is Weathercote Cave, a former show cave with waterfall which was also painted by Turner.

Other caves and potholes in and around the village include Hurtle Pot and Jingle Pot - entrances to a flooded cave system which can only be accessed by cave divers.
