This paper presents the first study of valley development in the Hackness Hills and, through an analysis of the links between lithological variation and valley morphology, suggests that groundwater sapping processes played a major role in valley formation. As such, this study aims to broaden the knowledge of groundwater erosion processes, particularly in humid temperate areas. The emphasis of this study is predominantly morphological and is intended to provide a basis for future process-oriented investigations
