Judith Allinson  says:

“I am delighted that the two Ingleton churches are able to
contribute to this event celebrating nature and the outdoors (both
overground and underground). It is especially appropriate as
Sunday 2nd June is Environment Sunday and 5th June is World
Environment Day.”

Details of Environment Sunday: 2 June:

Ingleton is set in the Limestone area of the Yorkshire Dales and is a
superb caving area. There are many special flowers here because of the
limestone. “Ingleton Overground-Underground” Festival (25-31 May)
