Janet's Foss
Janet's Foss is a small waterfall in the vicinity of Malham. It carries Gordale Beck over a limestone outcrop topped by tufa into a deep pool below. The pool was traditionally used for sheep dipping.
The name Janet (sometimes Jennet) is thought to be a folk tale reference to a fairy queen who inhabited a cave at the rear of the fall. Foss is a Nordic word for waterfall, still used in Scandinavia, and is presented in a number of cases in England as 'force'
Gordale Beck
Gordale Beck is a short (6Km) stream near Malham. It rises near Malham Tarn and flows south, through the impressive Gordale Scar, before joining Malham Beck south of the village of Malham to form the River Aire.
