"INGLEBOROUGH, in the parishes of Low Bentham, Horton in Ribblesdale and Clapham, wapentake of Staincliffe; 10 miles SE. of Settle, a mountain 3987 feet above the level of the sea. From the summit of Ingleborough, the country with its roads, rivers, towns and villages, capes and bays, may be seen like a large map stretched under the eye of the observer to a distance of 40, 50, and 60 miles. The immense lime-stone base on which this mountain stands is between 20 and 30 miles in circumference. The rise in some places is even and gradual, whilst in others, as to the N. and W. it is rugged and almost perpendicular. The top is plain and horizontal, being almost a mile round, having the ruins of an old wall upon it. On the western edge there is the remains of a beacon about 4 yards high, ascended by steps; and which may be seen over a vast tract of country. Though Whernside is higher than Ingleborough, yet the top of the latter mountain, from its situation, is the first land that the sailors descry in their voyage from Dublin to Lancaster, and it is seen when they are 30 miles at sea."
