Ingleborough footpath closed

A section of the usual route 3 Peakers take up/down Ingleborough will be closed for repair works from Monday 27th July 2020 until early January next year (although it's hoped work will be finished before then). The section is basically the top end of Humphrey Bottom and the 'staircase' (the top end ...

There's a light dusting on all three of the peaks at the moment from about 2/3rds of the way up to the summits.

Pen-Y-Ghent Cafe

Does anyone know the current status of the PYG Cafe in Horton?

Did it open last summer, is it open at all this winter?

Would be a real shame to see it lost.

Re: Yet more CRO rescues!

7 more incidents for the CRO to deal with since my original posting, most of whom were lost & benighted (i.e. lost on the hills after dark with no light source).

Late autumn/winter stupidity.

Re: Yet more CRO rescues!

Yes indeed God bless the CRO, although at the time of posting I was referring to an incident on the 28th Sept when a group of 3 Peakers got lost and benighted coming off Ingleborough. On such a long walk anyone can have an accident or have a health issue but to be generally unprepared/ill equipped i...

Yet more CRO rescues!

'The Guide'

I've had a few requests for copies of 'The Guide' recently, something that I was quite surprised at, and whilst that's all well and good people should be aware that these have not been updated since 2016/2017 and some of the information may be out of date (e.g. the YDNPA Car Parking charges at Horto...

Re: The Pen-y-ghent Cafe is closed until further notice.

Sadly the Cafe would still seem to be closed as a recent (5 days ago) posting on Trip Advisor indicates such.
