Ingleby Greenhow

I first came to this area in 1969 with my Dad and a party of walkers from the Nottinghamshire District Association of the Camping Club of GB&I. We were attempting the Lyke Wake Walk and camping for the duration near the village of Ingleby Greenhow. On arrival on the Friday night we went to the village pub, the Dudley Arms, seen here taking up most of the right of the range of buildings. In 1969 however I remember the Dudley Arms as being just the front room of a single two up two down cottage. The kitchen table as I recall served as the bar.

The name “Ingleby” occurs in lots of village names around here: Ingleby Arncliffe, Ingleby Barwick and of course here at Ingleby Greenhow. It is said the name comes from the old English word “Engle” meaning English or Anglian. The “” bit is Scandinavian for village suggesting that the name came from referring to an Anglian village within an area largely populated by Scandinavian settlers.
