Park Fell, with Simon Fell and Ingleborough in the distance

A walker was guided down from one of Yorkshire’s Three Peaks after getting lost in low cloud and darkness.

The 29-year-old man was attempting the Three Peaks Challenge, which involves summiting Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in a round 39km (24-mile) walk.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation, whose volunteers carry out both fell and cave rescues, was alerted at 7.10 this evening when the walker reported he was lost on the descent from Ingleborough to Horton in Ribblesdale.

A spokesperson for the team said: “Following numerous mobile phone conversations it was established that he was most likely on Park Fell.

“He was advised to follow a wall down towards Colt Park and was soon met by a CRO search dog team and escorted off the hill.”

Park Fell lies 3½km (2 miles) north-east of Ingleborough and is connected by a broad ridge.
