East of Konitz is an extensive moorland, 70 m.
The surface is moorland, pasture and mountain.
At a lower level there are wide tracts of moorland, covered in many cases with sweet-scented cistus and other wild flowers.
upper portion of this group consists of shales and sandstones, known as the Yoredale Rocks, which are highly developed in the moorland region between Lancashire and the north side of Yorkshire.
Although there are long stretches of marshy moorland along the coast, the soil is on the whole productive.
