Analysis - 1 In our coursework we were trying to find out whether Malham is a slave to tourism. In this section we are going to see if this is is true and our hypothesis was "Land use in malham shows that the village is a slave to tourism" In my methodology tells me that the idea in my prediction that we were expecting was the large amount of buildings that were mostly built for the tourist's benefit. The buildings that we found in Malham that was for tourist needs are hotels, caf�s, car parks , shops and the signpost tells me that is was provided for the tourist to look around in Malham. The residential buildings mainly were cottages and farms and small barn house as well as animals for breeding and crops for farming. By counting up numbers of buildings in whole of Malham got me a result of 158 buildings throughout whole of Malham but this is a bit inaccurate because on the way we might have missed a few buildings that we didn't see on our trip but this result is fairly reliable to ...read more.


The left side had a you number of 83 buildings altogether on the left side and 19 were tourist attractions such as car park, hotels and shops ,53 were residential such as homes, farms and barns houses and which provide both were 11. on the right side there were a total of 75 buildings and 11 were tourist attractions,61 were residential and 3 were both so this tell me that the left side of malham is mostly for tourist attraction and right side of Malham has more residential houses so this proves my prediction was wrong In Malham mainly signposts and footpaths are the main reasons that cause malham to be a slave to tourism because it causes more tourist to come to Malham and these signpost and footpaths were made for tourist to be used for tourism as well as for residential people and the most of signposts that lead and help the way for tourist people to know where they are going in Malham and these signposts were made by people to cause more tourist. ...read more.


such as farms, fields and animals so my area is not a slave to tourism and neither is Malham in some cases because in Malham there is a lot oft residential houses as there are in my area. So I have a found out that Malham is in come extend a slave to tourism. In Malham if there weren't any tourist attractions Malham would not be able to make enough money and bring enough tourist here to spend money on Malham and if this didn't happen Malham would not be losing anything because there is enough residential houses already for residential people to spend on it but in some places in Malham people own the land and tourist might want to visit the site but they cant unless by permission so this can also cause hassle in Malham because of some owned land and this is not a worry for Malham because they are already making enough money and using it on malham to maintain this national park until it remains clean and well maintained for both tourist and residential people to live on Malham. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
