Northern Limestone

The core of the Dales is a high limestone plateau cut by a series of steep-sided valleys that drain southwards towards industrial Yorkshire. The whole landscape is criss-crossed with hundreds of miles of drystone walling and dotted with many timeless hamlets and villages. Scattered throughout the area are some impressive chunks of limestone; pre-eminent amongst these are Yorkshire’s “big three” - namely Malham Cove, Gordale Scar and Kilnsey Crag. Scattered around this mighty trio lie many other memorable venues that, if located elsewhere, would manage to steal the limelight themselves.
