Nature-Hill Nature-Mountain Nature-Rock formation Nature-View point

At 736 metres, this mountain is the highest of the Yorkshire Three Peaks. From its summit, it offers commanding views around the surrounding landscape and down into the dales. Whernside has some unusual geological features. It is topped with a cap of Millstone Grit, a hardstone common in northern England. Beneath this tip are layers of rock that have gradually slipped and slid away causing the rounding shape of the mountain to form. One of the last remaining glaciers in the Yorkshire Dales was present on the north-eastern slopes of Whernside. Today, it forms the marshy area of Greensett Moss.
