Malham.

Jake and I recently spent a really lovely day walking near Malham. For anyone who hasn’t heard of Malham before, it’s a beautiful little village in North Yorkshire. It’s famous for the limestone pavement and Malham cove. We took a picnic and enjoyed a day of walking before spending the night in Harrogate. The weather started off pretty damn miserable, but as the day went on it got warmer and warmer until we arrived back in Malham to wonderful blue skies. I took a bucket load of photos so I thought I’d share some of them with you lovely folk.

Malham cove is huge! You can get an idea of scale from the tiny people a little way up the wall.

Walking up these steps nearly killed me. I swear there was at least a million of them.

It was so windy up on the pavement. I found a nook to huddle in and wrapped up in my scarf for a few minutes of peace!

If you’re wondering why you recognise this, it featured in Harry Potter, The Deathly Hallows part 1.

The limestone walls are like big white scars across the huge expanse of green.

I love the smell of wild garlic, I have never seen this much of it before!

When we got back in to Malham there was a duck race going on on the river and people were wading around in their wellies. The whole community was out and enjoying the sunshine, the village was teeming with people taking part in activities and games. It was such a great atmosphere.

When we got to Harrogate we were so exhausted from our 8 mile walk. We had quick showers and headed out with grumbling bellies. We found an Indian restaurant called Jinnah. It was D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S. The perfect end to a perfect day.
