Review of Ribblehead Viaduct

Ribblehead Viaduct
Ranked #1 of 13 things to do in Ingleton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 September 2017

Took a detour across the moors to show our American friends this feat of engineering. Surprised to see a Police speed detector van parked up on the moors monitoring traffic! How fast can you go on those hilly roads?
It was raining again as it did last time, but we admired the view and drove on.

Straddling a valley at the foot of all 3 Yorkshire Peaks, Pen-y-Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside, the long and imposing viaduct makes a perfect location to watch the steam trains that make regular trips on the Settle-Carlisle Railway Line. Whenever a train does go through, Ribblehead is crowded with photographers. Being where it is, the area attracts lots of walkers, too, as the scenery is worth seeing even without the trains and there are many walks passing through.

Found the viaducts when out and about. We were lucky enough to see train go over too. Free parking close by,also a pub (the station inn) which has very good meals.

When you get your first glimpse if this amazing structure you have to wonder how they achieved it all those years ago. It is a fantastic sight and a great photo opportunity!

I had often seen pictures of the Ribblehead Viaduct and always thought it stood alone out on the moorland. I was surprised to discover that at one time there were locomotive sheds and sidings beneath its towering arches too. There are some great walks most very easy to be had on the moorland around the viaduct and we spent a good three hours exploring the whole area.
