EISCAT International Symposium had the chance to go on two different excursions into the surrounding countryside. One of the options was a hike to the Ingleton Waterfalls, which have been popular with tourists since Victorian times: the path opened in 1885.
Ingleton. Ingleton and the walk are located across the border in North Yorkshire, while Lancaster is in Lancashire.
Kirkby Lonsdale, Lancashire. If you have visited Scandinavia, like most EISCAT users, you might recognise the word "Kirkby" to come from the Norse term for church village. Since everyone needed a drink after the hike, and it also had begun to rain, we sought refuge in the local pub the Orange Tree.
St Mary's Church, which dates back to the 12th century.
John Ruskin described as "one of the loveliest views in England," which was also painted by JMW Turner. Here we have to make due with a simple photograph taken on a rainy day, but you get the idea.
