Cumbria waterfalls tipped as best walks
Bookmark and Share
Those looking to put on waterproof jackets in the wet autumn weather can enjoy the rewards of a walk to a waterfall in Cumbria, it has been noted.

Guardian Country Diary writer Tony Greenbank said some of these are in the Lake District, such as Lodore Falls, Stock Ghyll and Aira Force.

However, he suggested, the best waterfalls are further east in the Howgill Fells, which lie on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Uldale Force is a particularly impressive waterfall at times of high rainfall, Mr Greenbank noted.

Speaking of its falls, he remarked: "They can arrive so suddenly, the jolt of viewing them is not totally unlike that, I would imagine, felt by David Livingstone when he first spotted Victoria Falls powering over their vast sill."

He also recommended Cautley Spout, close to the famous Temperance Inn, which does not sell alcohol but is famous for its ham and eggs.

Those walking in this area can enjoy mountain peaks as well as the waterfall, with The Calf and Yarlside both being over 2,000 ft high.
