Coverham is a village in Coverdale on the border of the Yorkshire Dales in North Yorkshire, England. It lies only 1 mile (1.6 km) west of the town of Middleham.[1]

The ruins of the Grade I listed Coverham Abbey are in the village[2] and the site has no access to the public.[3] Holy Trinity Church is said to have a slope at its south east corner whereby the gradient is so steep, that even though you are in the graveyard you cannot see the church nor hear the bells for the adjacent waterfall.[4][5]
