Outdoor Activities Malham Cove and Tarn Malham Cove is an 80 metre ft high, gently curving cliff of limestone which has amazed visitors for centuries. It is highly variable and can be unpredictable. They are formed by the precipitation of calcium carbonate calcite from mineral-rich water that percolates through the limestone into a cave. Erratic — A block of rock that has been eroded by a glacier, transported by the ice to a distant locality and then dumped as the glacier retreated. St Hubertthe patron saint of hunting, is also patron saint of the Forest of Bowland and has a chapel dedicated to him in Dunsop Bridge.

The owner of the hotel, Janet Simpson, who was seated on the other side of the piano, then offered to provide the lift. Water is an essential ingredient in the formation of the characteristic topographical features dolines, caves, dry valleys, etc. It is named after A. Carboniferous — A period of time between and million years ago.

Resurgence — Where a river or stream that has fallen into a cave system, returns to the surface. View the list of walk from the menu top left or view the walks on the area map by clicking here. As it levels out be alert for a fainter path leading left. The administrative centre is Preston.
