Some more views of Ribblehead

Ribblehead is a bleak moorland area at the very head of Ribblesdale, where the infant River Ribble has its source. Here the skyline is dominated by the majestic sentinels of Yorkshire's famous "Three Peaks" - Whernside, Ingleborough and Penyghent.

The area is probably most famous though, for the impressive Ribblehead Viaduct, which carries the world famous Settle - Carlisle railway line across the valley of Chapel le Dale.
