Those keen to go walking
in the Yorkshire Dales can join national park rangers for a trek around the Malham area in early July.
Starting at the Malham National Park Centre at 11:00 BST on July 3rd, the event will be led by volunteers from the authority and the walk will stretch for seven miles as it climbs to a vantage point over the valley.
The walk continues until 16:00 BST and those keen to join in may wish to put on some men's outdoor clothing
or women's outdoor clothing
, as well as walking boots
Malham is owned by the National Trust and is famous for its limestone scenery as well as Malham Tarn, which is larger than some of the Lake District's lakes and exists due to being situated on a sheet of impermeable rock in the midst of all the limestone.
The National Trust website for Malham notes that the tarn inspired the Charles Kingsley novel The Water Babies.
