Malham Moor Tree

Best Viewed Large

This part of the National Park is divided geologically by the Craven Fault. South of the fault, down to Gargrave, the result is deep, rich soils, now acidic pastureland but in the past used to grow corn. North of the fault, above Malham village, by contrast, there are dry limestone pastures, used for sheep grazing since at least Medieval times.
