|Clapham Beck Head|
Just past it is the head of Clapham Beck in the form of a spring that pours forth from a cave. Nice.
|Approaching Trow Gill|
We continued along the track to Trow Gill. On the photo’s, it looks more than it is. It’s a pleasant place with cliff sides, a cave and the Gill itself which is easy to walk up.

|The Slippery Fell Beck|
|Ingleborough Summit Cairn|
The rain continued and got heavier. As we started up the slope of little Ingleborough we discussed going back, but onward and upward, up to the top of Little Ingleborough we went. The path then levels out for a bit before you start climbing to the top of Ingleborough Peak itself. The cloud base was sinking and the rain kept coming, but eventually we got there. We walked across the very flat top to the weather shelter where I managed to get a photo of the summit cairn. We couldn’t see far but we did make out some of the surrounding hills as we paused for a well earned steak slice.
The private path comes out at Clapham next to a very pretty waterfall, which I think is manmade. We’ve been here before and I have sunny day pictures. We didn’t stop to admire this time though, it was still raining.
