Information on Clapham, Yorkshire
Clapham is situated at the base of Ingleborough, one of the 3 peaks, and there are 3 routes from the village leading to the summit. The church in the village, St James’s, was originally dedicated to St Michael and was in existence in the 12 Century though most of the present church dates from the 19th century. A nature trail from the village leads over Fell beck, past the saw mill and to Ingleborough Cave with its floodlit stalactites & stalagmites, and Gaping Gill, England’s deepest drop waterfall. The cave system is open to the public daily in Summer and at weekends in Winter months.
