Malham village

Malham is home to only 150 people but is one of the most visited villages in the Yorkshire Dales due to it's proximity to some of England's most striking limestone features, Malham Cove and Gordale Scar.
Malham village Many of the visitors to Malham are passing through on the Pennine Way, a long-distance footpath but many more come to see the natural attractions as well as the village's two pubs, the Buck Inn and Lister Arms, a rare breeds park and National Park Visitor Centre. A small barn owned by the National Trust is open to visitors and contains a small display of rural life in the area and at the south end of the village is a smithy.
The village can get busy during the summer and finding a parking space can be difficult.
The Malham Show takes place on the Saturday before the August Bank Holiday Monday and features livestock, horses, local crafts and produce and displays, along with sports, family attractions and trade stands. The fell race which takes part during the show takes runners over the 301 metre (988 feet) high Cawden.

The Ham Class minesweeper, HMS Malham was named after the village. Built in 1958, HMS Malham was transferred to the Ghanan navy the following year and scrapped in 1977 having been renamed GNS Yogada. The names for the Ham Class minesweepers were chosen from villages whose names ended in -ham.

To the south of Malham village is Kirkby Malham and the Quaker village of Airton.
