Yorkshire prairie
The great area of open pastureland around Malham Tarn has long been used for grazing animals. In medieval times this area was owned by Fountains Abbey who kept large flocks of sheep here. In later centuries, up until the advent of the railways, it was a gathering ground for herds of cattle driven here from other parts of northern England and Scotland, before being moved on to markets further south.
