Chapel-le-Dale church

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

The hamlet of Chapel-le-Dale itself takes its name from St. Leonard's Chapel (pictured above) 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 hamlet 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.
