This area of the Yorkshire Dales National Park is renowned for its stunning limestone scenery, with lofty scars, wide expanses of limestone pavement, tumbling waterfalls and spectacular cave systems. One of the most intriguing phenomena of the last Ice Age lies just above the village at Norber, where hundreds of boulders called erratics have been left stranded by the retreating ice, and now stand on pedestals of limestone in testimony of the thousands of years that have passed since their arrival.
