Gordale Scar  John Piper"Gordale Scar - from Illustrations and Book Jackets for English, Scottish and Welsh Landscapes" by John Piper (1903-1992). Lithograph on paper. Above the village of Malham in the Yorkshire Dales lie some amazing geological features in the limestone crags. To the north of the Mid Craven Fault in the Malham Formation is Gordale Scar, which was carved as a meltwater channel beneath the Devensian ice-sheet. The sides of this gorge overhang to a considerable extent, suggesting that there was once a great cavern, the roof of which has subsequently collapsed.
