Three Peaks Project

The Yorkshire Dales National Park is honoured to have within its boundary the mountains Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside, collectively known as the Three Peaks. They cover 160km2 of upland in the west of the Park, rise to 736m at their tallest and form part of the Pennine range that runs through the backbone of central and northern England.
