Pen-y-ghent is a fell in the Yorkshire Dales. It is one of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, the other two being Ingleborough and Whernside. It lies some 3 km east of Horton in Ribblesdale. The Pennine Way links the summit to the village; the route is around 5 km in length as the Way curves initially to the north before turning east to reach the summit.
In the Cumbric language 'Pen' presumably meant hill or head, but 'ghent' is more obscure. It could be taken to be edge or border.The name "Pen-y-ghent" could therefore mean Hill on the border. Alternatively, it could be mean 'wind' or 'winds' - from the closest Welsh language translation as 'gwynt'. Thus it might mean simply 'Head of the Winds'.
