When you sign up could you please state if you have a car and are willing to offer people a lift (or if you want to hire a car, take passengers and share costs). It is possible to go to Settle from Kings Cross and then get a 20 min bus (number 580) trip to Ingleton. At the moment you can get super saver returns for around £45-50 (East Coast Trains), not sure if the prices go up or down, it’s really your luck I’m afraid! For example I’ve seen on the train line there is a £43.00 a return. Kings Cross to Settle leaving at 10.03 arriving at 13.48 for £25.50 Settle to Kings Cross leaving at 18.41 arriving at 23.26 for £17.50 This is only an example as there are other times Any questions contact [masked] [masked] FYI - around the challenge Acknowledgement of Risk Your booking is based on your acceptance of the risk inherent in outdoor activities.
