Ingleton and the surrounding area was settled in the Iron Age by the Brigantes who built a hill fort on top of Ingleborough with walls a kilometer in circumference. The Romans defeated the Brigantes in battle and built a fort alongside the hill fort. The valley was crossed by Roman roads as Ingleton was a strategic river crossing. By the 12th century the Normans had built a church in the village.
Meet the team
The Howson family purchased the hostel from YHA in January 2014, with a view to keeping a Youth Hostel within the village to the benefit of the local community and visitors to the area.
