Famous for Mother Shipton's Cave and the adjacent Petrifying Well (where running water gradually coats suspended objects in a limestone deposit - thus turning them to stone), Knaresborough also boasts a fine castle and several other attractions - including a house built in to the cliff face and a chapel in the rock at the side of the gorge.
