Traversing the summit at Ais Gill in Mallerstang and the Three Peaks of Penyghent, Ingleborough and Whernside, the railway is populated by the highest mainline stations in England, from which we mount this enchanting and rugged walking terrain. Lyric celebration is followed by a polemic to conclude the NAJ trilogy (25, 26, 28) which explores the 18th and 19th century phenomenon of the Model Village.
