I've been to a few waterfalls around the dales but this has got to be one of the easiest to find. It's a very short walk from the Main Street of west burton and you can easily get to both sides of the falls with...More

Very picturesque walked both sides, over the bridge, then took the footpath north, through the sheep fields. Splendid views.

Went to the picturesque village to see the waterfall, very nice views with easy access, will be back in winter after some heavy rain to see in full flow!
