The scenery around the village of Malham is some of the most recognisable in the Yorkshire Dales, thanks to a large seam of limestone which breaks the surface in the area. This has resulted in dry, well-drained grass pastures which are a pleasure to walk on in all weathers and some very distinctive landscape features, not least Malham Cove and Goredale Scar.
Malhamdale also plays host to Malham Beck which, after emerging from underneath Malham Cove, flows through the valley, eventually joining the River Aire at the village of Airton.
