limestone clints and grykes on Malham Cove limestone pavement

Clints and grykes

Limestone pavements, common in the Malham area of the dales, are characterised by their clints and grykes.

Clints refer to the pedestals of limestone that are separated from each other by deep cracks or grykes. The pattern is formed as cracks in the rock are widened by rainwater over many years.
