On the moors above Malham village lies a tarn which drains the surrounding land into vast undergrounds caves. The water disappears into holes in the ground called "Watersinks".
Large boulders of limestone litter the land in this desolate but beautiful area of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. A bracing walk is on offer from a roadside car park, all around the tarn and passing through the Field Centre which does much scientific and conservation work in the area and is run by the National Trust. Many long distance views can be had from this lofty vantage point. In the distance, Fountains Fell is still in winter clothing.
