Above Twisleton Scars
A stroll behind St. Leonards' Church at Chapel-le-Dale leads to Britain's most spectacular limestone pavement.
Twisleton Scars on the west side of Chapel-le-Dale, where different strengths in the beds of Great Scar Limestone have resulted in a series of steps in the landscape.
Behind the church are windows into the normally subterranean Chapel Beck. This is Jingle Pot - one example, and so called because of the noises pebbles make when thrown into the depths.
Nearby is the famous Weathercote Cave - where Chapel Beck plunges to basement level out of one flooded cave - and into another. The magnificent waterfall emerges behind the great wedged boulder of Mohammed's Coffin.
As we walk up the lane past the church, we encounter the eerie statue, created by Charles L'Anson.
Gritstone boulder - one of hundreds of erratics resting on the limestone pavements, left behind by the ice retreat 11,000 years ago.
Towards the north end, away from the North Craven Fault, the clints are larger - being more broken towards the fault line.
Looking across Chapel-le-Dale at the old quarry exposing the basement rocks beneath the Great Scar Limestone.
Ingleborough sits on a massive plinth of Great Scar Limestone - laid down in a tropical sea 340 million years ago. What a view this is - the best of the mountain in my opinion.
Boulder clay deposited by the glacier - smothers the pavements to the extreme north of the plateau.
