Photographer's Note

This is the first image in a small series taken on an afternoon trip to Ingleton, primarily to photograph the waterfalls there.

I was not sure at the time when the photo was taken whether I was in for a drenching.

I decided on this view rather than a straight forward shot of just the church to emphasise that the church is nestled within the village itself - it is part of it, not separate.

'St Mary's Church occupies a spacious site in the middle of the village.
The church is known as a 'Phoenix' of the riverside and the font is one of the best Norman fonts in Yorkshire.
The village of Ingleton has a history going back to the Iron ages, when a fortress existed on top of Ingleborough (one of the three peaks).
More recently the Village had its commercial interests in quarrying and coal mining, and although quarrying goes on, the mining has now ceased with the only remnants being the housing area known as New Village, built for the miners and their families'.
