A picturesque stream runs amiably through this small village, adding a bygone quality to an already-charming destination.

The Old Manor House dates to 1701 but was transformed during the 19th century into a recreation centre for local people.

From Clapham a path leads to Ingleborough Hall and reaches Ingleborough Cave with its spectacular passageways.

A mile further on is Gaping Gill, the outlet of this cave system and North Yorkshire’s most dramatic pothole.
