9. Walk from Malham to Janet's Foss and onto different views of Gordale Scar after heavy rain!

The pictures are a compilation from several walks at different times of the year - as you can readily tell!

Closer view of Gordale Scar and the waterfall

Closer view of Gordale Scar and the waterfall. All the result of thousands of years of running water eroding the limestone to eventually carve out the spectacular gorge.

The contrast between the approach to Gordale Scar and Gordale Scar itself - an inversion of light and colour.

 

Plenty of water flowing through Gordale Scar today!

View of Gordale Scar from above, not surprisingly, a major tourist attraction of the Yorkshire Dales.

Gordale Scar, Yorkshire Dales National Park, North Yorkshire, Northern England: Gordale Scar is another fabulous picnic spot in the Yorkshire Dales National park. There is a lovely short walk from Gordale Scar to the equally spectacular Malham Cove. Gordale Scar is set in classic limestone country with the lower fields contained within handsome dry stone walls. The 'scar' itself was carved out by melt water under one of the many ice-age sheets that covered northern England. Its probable that the Gordale gorge was formed by the collapse of the roof of a huge limestone cavern, i.e. of the type that potholers just love in the Dales!
