Ingleby Greenhow

Ingleby Greenhow is an attractive village at the entrance to Greenhow Bottom, a dramatic valley that cuts into the northern edge of the North York Moors. The village is bordered by the steep escarpment at the edge of the moors to the east and south, with Round Hill, the highest point on the Moors, due south of the village.
