Ingleton: A Beautiful Village in The Yorkshire Dales.
Ingleton is a beautiful Yorkshire Dales village nestled on the lower slopes of Ingleborough, one of Yorkshire’s famous Three Peaks.This is Ingleton
The history of Ingleton can be traced back to a pre-historic settlement around 2000BC.
Later, it was settled in the Iron Age by the Brigantes who built a fort on top of Ingleborough. When the Romans invaded around 43AD they defeated the Brigantes in battle and built a fort alongside the hill fort. The valley was criss-crossed by Roman roads.
Jumping ahead a thousand years, the village is mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1084 where it is referred to as “Inglestune”.
By the 12th century the Normans had built a church in the village.
