Malham Cove

The countryside around Malham provides you with some of the finest scenery in Britain. Malham Cove is a limestone amphitheatre formed through ice and water erosion after the last ice age. At the top, there is a remarkable limestone pavement with its clints (small flat blocks) and grikes (deep crevices between), and a sensational view over the valley. Beyond, the Dry Valley leads northwards towards Malham Tarn, a great spot for a picnic.
