Ingleborough Cave is on the south side of Ingleborough, above the village of Clapham. The Cave is to the General Public, School Groups and Cavers of all experience.
An awe-inspiring range of stunning cave formations, the imposing cave entrance and the large passages are full of artefacts dating back millions of years along with the evidence of the significant impact of the Ice Ages.
The passages are floodlit with well-laid concrete paths, the usual walking or outdoor clothing will suffice and there are no steps so the Cave is accessible for pushchairs. Dogs are allowed on leads and it is very rarely affected by flooding, in fact the wetter the weather the more spectacular the Cave!
The walk from Clapham Village to the Cave is also a unique and very enjoyable experience. There is a leaflet available at the start of the Trail which interprets the features of the walkthrough this woodland landscape with Himalayan plantings, unusual tree species and along a wide, well-maintained gravel track.
The Trail also provides access further up Clapdale beyond Ingleborough Cave to Trow Gill Gorge, a large limestone gorge carved out by glacial meltwater.
