This limestone pavement resides in the shadow of Ingleborough, the middle of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, in the Pennines range of north-central England. It was exposed by glacial retreat at the end of the last ice age. Every year, thousands of hikers pass by this surface as they attempt to complete the Three Peaks Challenge in 12 hours.
