Cutting through the hills north-east of
Ingleton is Chapel-le-Dale. Gouged out by an Ice-Age
glacier over 12,000 years ago, the valley is like an open
geological history book with it's strata revealed in
exposed rocky outcrops, the best example of which is
Chapel le Dale Church Chapel le Dale villageThe River Doe flows through Chapel-le-Dale before plunging down Beezley and Snow Falls (both of which can be seen on the Ingleton Waterfalls Walk) and into Ingleton. Several underground rivers surface at the River Doe, resurgances for the many caves high up on Ingleborough. One such example is Joint Hole (below) which can be explored by cavers using SCUBA diving equipment. Cave diving is one of the world's most dangerous sports.
