The school trip used to be to Ingleborough on the coach, Wallies Trollies – (and here’s the only reference I could find!).
The egg sandwiches always stunk by the time you got there.
As a youth I used to go up to that area on my motorbike, and some of my friends used to help marshalling the dog tags for the Fellsman
We’ve walked the three peaks a few times, and failed once when the bottom part of the route up to Ingleborough became treacherous with ice on top of snow.
The target is to achieve the walk in 12 hours to then claim your badge, here are a few pictures from the last wander around Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-Ghent
Pen-y-ghent from Horton in Ribblesdale, just above the school. Lovely, everything looking good for the next day.

The picture of the waterfall below looks much nicer if the colours are tweaked. THIS is actually what it looked like.
We really should have checked the weather before we left and maybe I should have cleaned the rain from my lens.
