Chapel-le-Dale stretches in a south-westerly direction
The sides of the Dale are the slopes of Ingleborough to the east and Whernside to the west.
The dale is characterised by prominent outcrops of stepped limestone scars and screes along the valley sides.
To the north of the hamlet of Chapel-le-Dale, the Winterburn Beck has cut down into the limestone bedrock to form a relatively broad, undulating dale. To the south of the hamlet, the valley narrows and then becomes a deep, straight, U-shaped trough.
Winterburn Beck drains the upper dale, but this disappears underground to emerge in the lower dale as the River Doe.
The B6255 from Ingleton to Ribblehead (and beyond) follows the eastern side of the dale whilst an ancient Roman Road
St Leonards Church in the hamlet of Chapel-le-Dale is a Grade II listed building.
