Ingleborough At 723m (2,372ft), Ingleborough is the second highest of the Yorkshire Three Peaks but is probably most people's favourite with the interesting route up from Clapham providing a great scene-setter for the fine views from the top.

Friends of the Three Peaks

One of the paths to Ingleborough from and Chapel-le-Dale on the Three Peaks route is temporarily closed. More information, an alternative route and FAQs here.

The Friends of the Three Peaks are a group of individuals and organisations who want to protect and enhance the special qualities of the distinctive and inspirational landscapes of the Three Peaks area in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The Friends of the Three Peaks is an off-shoot of the Three Peaks Project and supports its objectives, helping to raise funds and provide work-hours so it can achieve them.

Friends help by:

  • giving an annual membership fee
  • undertaking or donating to fundraising activities for maintenance and conservation work
  • getting involved in some of the maintenance as part of organised Ranger-led groups
  • buying/selling exclusive Three Peaks merchandise
  • sharing their passion about the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Three Peaks with others
  • encouraging others to join the Friends of the Three Peaks

Benefits of becoming a Friend of the Three Peaks:

  • regular newsletters
  • invitations to organised events including guided walks
  • meeting like minded people
  • access to unique volunteering opportunities
  • the protection of the unique area for their personal enjoyment now and in the future
