Ingleton  West Riding


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Ingleton like this:

INGLETON, a village, a township, and a chapelry, in Bentham parish, W. R. Yorkshire. The village stands on the river Greta, at the junction of the Midland and the Northwestern railways, at the SW skirt of Ingleborough, near some grand rock scenery and some interesting caves, 9 miles NW of Settle; is a seat of petty sessions; and has a railway station, a post office under Lancaster, a police station, a weekly market on Friday, and fairs on the day before Holy Thursday and on 17 Nov.-The township includes Chapel-le-Dale, and comprises 17, 858 acres. ...

Real property, £7, 616. Pop., 1, 247. Houses, 262. Much of the surface is mountain; and much of the scenery is romantic and grand. The rocks include limestone, coal, and slate; and possess much interest for geologists.—The chapelry is less extensive than the township, and excludes Chapel-le-Dale. Pop., 1, 081. The living is a p. curacy in the diocese of Ripon. Value, £120. Patron, the Rector of Bentham. The church is ancient, has a tower, and contains a richly sculptured Norman font. There are a Wesleyan chapel, a national school, and charities £15.
