Gordale Scar is a limestone ravine situated near Malham in North Yorkshire.
Formed from melting glacier water, this dramatic attraction contains two waterfalls with overhanging limestone cliffs standing at over 100m high.
The Scar has been the subject not only of paintings by James Ward and JMW Turner, which hang in Tate Britain but also of a sonnet written by Wordsworth.
Experience the true magnificence of this gorge by taking the footpath which leads from the road into Gordale Scar. There is a steep climb leading up to Malham Moor and then on to Malham Tarn. Parking is available in the village.
