Gordale Scar

Local nameGordale Scar
LocationMalham, UK

Gordale Scar is a limestone ravine 1 mile northeast of Malham, North Yorkshire, England. It contains two waterfalls and has overhanging limestone cliffs over 100 metres high. The gorge could have been formed by water from melting glaciers or a cavern collapse. The stream flowing through the scar is Gordale Beck, which on leaving the gorge flows over Janet's Foss before joining Malham Beck two miles downstream to form the River Aire. A right of way leads up the gorge, but requires climbing approximately 10 feet of tufa at the lower waterfall.
