“waterfalls and disused mills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

A heavenly waterfall and trail of old mill buildings, millstones, a mill pond......a gorgeous little walk and public footpath. A hidden gem well worth seeking out.

“waterfalls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

There aren't many waterfalls of any size in Derbyshire - see Kinder Downfall that actually goes up if there is a breeze. Lumsdale has a small reservoir that used to serve a range of mills, now mainly derelict, dismantled, or used for other purposes.

“Derbyshire's secret waterfall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Amazing, spiritual, breathtaking! Huge waterfall with old mill ruins to add atmosphere. Highly reccommended. I used to live in Tansley nearby, would visit regularly.
