At Malham Tarn and Moor, visitors cannot fail to be impressed with the superb natural feature of Malham Cove. A unique natural amphitheatre made up of curved limestone cliffs (not owned by the nt). Combine a walk here from Malham village with a visit to Janet's Foss and Malham Tarn. Created by glaciers thousands of years ago, this tarn is a popular focal point in Malhamdale's classic limestone countryside. On its western shore is Tarn Moss, a wetland haven for birds and wildlife. Town Head Barn in Malham provides information and leaflets about the area. It is also home to an exhibition on farming in Malhamdale with interactive displays and activities for all ages.
