CLAPHAM 50A - Ingleborough Estate Trail
The Ingleborough Eastate Trail, Clapham, North Yorkshire.
The Ingleborough Estate was designed by Reginald Farrer of Ingleborough Hall. REGINALD FARRER Farrer lived at the Hall until his death from diphtheria in the Burmese mountains at the early age of forty. Many operations to a cleft palate led to a home education and solitary childhood spent studying rare alpine plants on the Ingleborough fells. He later became a pioneer of natural rock garden design, a writer, botanical explorer and plant collector. Several plant species have been named after him such as Geranium Farreri. Many plants collected on his far eastern travels were used to create the appearance of an Himalayan valley on the Ingleborough Estate.
Small admission charge to The Trail.
