Those who like to put on their walking boots and climb one of Yorkshire best-known mountains will find the task easier after work was concluded on a project to repair a damaged footpath.

As one of the Three Peaks, Ingleborough is climbed frequently and the popular route to the top from Chapel-le-Dale has had to be repaired, a job undertaken jointly by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and the British Mountaineering Council (BMC).

The BMC's Access and Conservation Trust provided £6,000 towards the project, which national park authority manager for the Three Peaks Steve Hastie said has lead to a "big improvement" in the path's state.

It's now back in top condition, he noted, explaining the route had been damaged due to its steepness and the heavy levels of use it receives.

Ingleborough is often climbed alongside Whernside and Pen-Y-Ghent as part of the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, but walkers can also enjoy peaks like Great Shunner Fell, Dodd Fell Hill and Buckden Pike elsewhere in the national park.
