called Hulpit and Huntpit Holes;
through each of them runs a subterra-
neous brook, which emerges at a con-
siderable distance; on the west side of
the mountain are the remains of some
ancient places of interment, called the
Giants* Graves ; but the skeletons dis-
covered here do not exceed the ordi-
nary size. To the western boundary
of the parish are the skirts of Ingle-
borough Hill, which extends its im-
mense lime-stone base into the adjoin-
ing parishes of Bentham and Clapham ;
this mountain is 2361 feet in height;
the top is flat, and nearly a mile in
circumference; the summit is of a
gritty sand-stone; it commands a no-
ble view; and here was anciently a
beacon, to communicate any sudden
alarm. Ingleborough is the first land
descried by sailors in their voyage from
Dublin to Lancaster.
