One of the first geological parks to be set up in Europe it has dramatic escarpments and ridges, limestone pavements, millstone grit and red sandstone rocks. The whole area is riddled with caves, divided by streams cascading down the hillsides in a series of waterfalls and inhabited by wild mountain ponies. There are many historic sites from ancient castles to WW11 crash sites, iron and bronze age forts to the more recent industrial landscapes such as coal mines.
