Malham Cove Waterfall Boosts the Popularity of Limestone: London Stone Comments


London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/25/2016 -- The 2015 event of storm-induced water flowing cover one of Britain's most iconic cliffs, Malham Cove, is anticipated to have set a trend for 2016: increased focus on the aesthetic qualities of natural stone. Increased attention was paid to Malham Cove, located in The Yorkshire Dales National park, after heavy rain from Storm Desmond turned the cliffs into a 260ft waterfall. This visual spectacular has been viewed online over 100,000 times and is set to renew interest in outdoor stone solutions, as London Stone were keen to comment on.

Malham Cove is already known for its distinct visual appeal; a solid face of pale limestone patterned with natural lichens. The cliffs are usually dry and thus the flooding caused a waterfall reported to be the first on the cove 'in living memory'. For a brief period of time, until the flooding stopped, it became one of Britain's highest unbroken waterfalls as well as a national talking point. What many people were keen to discuss was the impressive features of the stone and hence why the waterfall looked so striking.

In turn, a method people can bring an element of limestone closer to home – expected to be popular this year – is through garden landscaping features. Keen to comment on this was London Stone, a prime provider of stone solutions, including working with limestone. A spokesperson had this to say:

"The recent attention on Malham Cove shows how stunning limestone can be. It is a brilliant material which composes some of Britain's most iconic natural features. Here at London Stone, that is why we offer a range of limestone options, including for paving, steps and patios."
