History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
From Gordale the beck runs southwards out of the ravine to another waterfall at Janet's Foss, and then downstream to join Malham Beck and form the Aire River. A mile or so to the west is Malham Cove, a dramatic horseshoe shaped cliff.
Gordale Scar was painted by JMW Turner, and eulogized in a poem by William Wordsworth.
