Red Sky Over Ingleborough, Ribblesdale

The top of Ingleborough is a large flat plateau with a number of features. It was once believed that the summit was the site of an Iron Age hillfort and indeed the name Ingleborough is Old English for ‘The fort on the Peak Hill.’ Nowadays it is more generally believed that the remains date from the Bronze Age and may have been ‘ring cairns’, built for ritualistic purposes.
