blank image This superb village near Skipton lies in the midst of some of North Yorkshire’s most rugged scenery, the result of an Ice Age glacier interacting with natural limestone.
Here are the impressive cliffs of Malham Cove - a vast limestone amphitheatre - and a huge limestone ‘pavement’ caused by the eroding action of acid rain.

Nearby Malham Moor and the nature reserve of Malham Tarn are unmissable natural wonders while the twisted gorge of Gordale Scar and the pretty waterfall of Janet’s Foss must not be overlooked.
