Walking Log ... Walks including "Malham Cove"


Malham Cove
Malham Cove is a spectacular natural limestone rock formation in the Yorkshire Dales. It is a large curved rock face, measuring approximately 300 yards across and 260 feet high. The cliff is topped with an unusually patterned limestone pavement made up of deep clints (the limestone formations) and grykes (the gaps between them).

Around 400 steps lead the way from the base of the cliff to the top, and form a very small part of The Pennine Way, which crosses over the pavement and follows on to Malham Tarn and beyond.

Malham Cove also hosts a variety of wildlife, but possibly most interesting a pair of Peregrine Falcons which have nested on the rock face since 1993.

From the top of the Cove there are fantastic views over Malham and the valley beyond.
