Ingleton is a villiage in the south west corner of the Yorkshire Dales which is generally regarded as a base for walkers and tourists for this corner of the Dales. The main activities include The waterfalls walk ( my last post), White Scar caves ( seen in the distance on Welcome to Yorkshire photo.. last post ) and The mountain of Ingleborough ( elsewhere on this blog ).
(As with the "Hawes" post, these pictures were affected by the weather, so apologies to the photographers out there, it is not a great set as it is more of a diary journal. Most of the pictures were taken in a hurry trying to keep up with friends on the way to the car. I promise that the next post will be mainly for photographers, there won't be many words and will be posted sooner rather than later )
After leaving the last waterfall, the walk seemed to be unending as the rain became heavier and it was with great pleasure that we came to civilisation and this was the first hose that we saw.
The next three shots are out of sequence but I thought you may like to get an idea of the village first.

An interesting experience !! It was a caving shop ( pot holing down caves in this LImestone area is a big sport ) which had some really unusual equipment in that I had never seen before. The place didn't look as if it had changed much in 30 years....
There was a severe lack of people enjoying the hot drinks on a day like this and all for prices that did'nt seem to have changed much either in years !!
Even the resident dog seemed a bit startled by visitors disturbing him, but the point to our discussion was how these caving suits might have kept us dry and warm on the walk... !!
I wonder which colour I can see myself in... Green ??!! , spiders, sheep or dinosaurs ??!
