The Area around Malham, Yorkshire, England
The River Aire at Hanlith. This view is about 1½ miles south of Malham and a little under a mile below the source which is the confluence of Malham Beck and Gordale Beck ( Beck is the Yorkshire term for stream). The cliffs of Malham Cove can be seen in the distance.
The River Aire joins the River Ouse which eventually drains into the North Sea.

This picturesque little waterfall, Janet's Foss, is in Gordale Beck before the beck joins Malham Beck and becomes the River Aire.
The term 'Foss', and 'Force', stem from the old Norse word for waterfall.
This view is looking out from within Gordale Scar at the lower end of this impressive limestone gorge, over 300 feet high, with Gordale Beck flowing through it.
It is possible to scramble up through the gorge to the higher ground beyond but you do so at your own risk.
