The trig point shares the broad summit plateau with a large cairn and the cross shaped summit shelter. Certainly on the occasions I’ve visited Ingleborough the shelter tends to act as the focal point for visitors to the summit and the trig point is almost neglected.
Unlike the majority of trig points in the Yorkshire Dales, which are made of concrete, the Ingleborough trig point is made of stone, presumably taken from the summit area. The view is, unsurprisingly, extensive but due to the broad nature of the plateau lacks a bit of depth.
