Malham Cove is a limestone, meaning a sedimentary rock, composed of skeletal fragments of marine organisms. It is located near the village of Malham, in the county of North Yorkshire, England. The wide curved characteristic was made by a waterfall at the end of the last ice age. The limestone is within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The vertical face of the cliff is about 80 metres (260 feet) high. It offers stunning views down the dale towards Malham and beyond. Malham Cove is home to peregrine falcons and little owls.
