Malhamdale in the Yorkshire Dales has some of the most spectacular examples of limestone scenery in the whole of the National Park. Walking routes are abundant in and around Malham village; taking in Malham Cove, Gordale Scar and the waterfall, Janet’s Foss. Inspired by this area, Wordsworth wrote two poems called ‘Pure Elements of Water’. John Ruskin referred to the area in ‘Prosperina’ of 1875. The scenery of Malhamdale also inspired Charles Kingsley to write ‘The Water Babies’.
