Goredale Scar

A great limestone gorge near Malham some 400 feet deep, Gordale Scar is believed to be the remains of a huge underground cavern whose roof collapsed around the time of the last ice age.

Gordale Beck cascades down the gorge in three separate waterfalls. A short scramble takes visitors up the smooth limestone deposits at the lower waterfalls into the top section of the gorge, where a route leads out in to the upper part of Gordale and on towards Malham Tarn.
