A walk around Ingleton Waterfalls
Decided today to drive to Ingleton waterfalls in the Yorkshire Dales. If you head into the village of Ingleton and follow the signs into the car park. It’s £6 per adult to do the walk.
The walk itself is a circular walk of 5 miles.
It’s been a while since I did this walk and I had forgotten how strenuous it is. Some very steep steps and some rough terrain. The waterfalls are amazing though and I had my new ten stop filter to try out on my camera. This filter helps get the milky effect of the water as it slows down the shutter speed. I was really happy with the final images.
Dexter really enjoyed the walk and his medication is working wonders for his joints. He kept running up and down the steps and getting a drink from the river.
The halfway point of the walk gets really tough with some very steep steps
but worth it for the ice cream van at the top of the lane. We met some really nice people on the walk from all areas of the country and even a couple from New York. This is probably one of the bonuses of stopping and catching your breath, chatting to people, which is something I enjoy. Probably due to my old job of working at Holiday Parks, part of our duties was to chat to as many people as you could in one evening.
We found the small cafe was closed which was disappointing. There is a cafe at the start of the walk and you can finish off your day here, but be aware that it. Loses at 5pm. Thee are a couple of tea rooms in the village itself.
A really nice day out and well worth the money. I can’t wait to return. Dexter may need to rest first though. He was exhausted at the end of the day.
