Walks Around Ribblehead Viaduct

In the heart of the Yorkshire Dales are the infamous Yorkshire 3 Peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. Right in the middle of them, in the bottom of the dale is the spectacular Ribblehead Viaduct.

An ancient monument that was built between 1870 and 1874 and is an icon of the Yorkshire Dales. To take a spectacular walk in this area does not just have to involve climbing up high.

You can walk circular and linear walks in all directions around the viaduct and along the lower slopes of the big peaks. No matter the weather the views are expansive and wonderful.
