Your Personal Town Guide
North Yorkshire
The small village of Malham has some of the most stunning scenery in the Yorkshire Dales. The 300ft high Malham Cove was created by a waterfall at the end of the Ice Age. Water now finds its own path through the rock and re-appears at the bottom of the Cove as the source of the river Aire. You can walk to the top and see the limestone pavement caused by water percolating through fissures in the rock. This erosion caused the collapse of a cave system leaving behind the gorge, Gordale Scar. The Cove, the Scar, the waterfall Janet’s Foss and the lake, Malham Tarn (above the Cove), can all be included in a six mile walk from the village. Walkers and visitors co-exist with the farmers, who come together every August for their own Agricultural Show.
