Malham Cove
Malham Cove
This superb limestone cliff is on the Mid-Craven fault. To the north the white/grey of the limestone forms the landscape whilst south of the Cove the gritstones are at the surface giving rise to more acidic soils and vegetation. On top of the Cove are the famous clints and grikes. The field inside the first wall shows signs of Iron Age field boundaries whilst in the distance the field boundaries owe their origin to the monks from Fountains Abbey.
