Malham Cove

To Malham for the night.

Not much sign of folks self-isolating; with the car park and roadside parking full, a farmer had opened up a field to capitalise on the tourists.

And it’s only March.

In the village, the Buck and several cafes all seemed to be doing a busy trade.

In fact, the only sign of the Coronavirus outbreak was a notice in the Buck asking customers to take their glasses back to the bar to reduce handing by the staff.

Oh yes, and meals will be a little delayed because staff are hand washing more regularly.

And overnight the infant River Aire rose about two feet emerging from its subterranean course at the foot of Malham Cove.

The Craven Fault is a major geological fracture from Kirkby Lonsdale to Threshfield. Malham Cove is the most striking part of this fault.

An amphitheatre of limestone cliffs rising to almost 90 metres, a playground for rock athletes but certain climbs are now out of bounds because of nesting peregrine falcons.
