Malham Cove is a large curved limestone formation 0.6 miles north of the village of Malham. It was formed by a waterfall carrying meltwater from glaciers at the end of the last Ice Age more than 12,000 years ago.
Today it is a well-known beauty spot within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. A large limestone pavement is above the cove.
