We parked at the car park and had a gentle stroll to the falls, they were pretty spectacular due to a weekend of heavy rain. Nice spot for a picnic.

We were visiting Settle and decided to and see the falls. It was a nice day and there were only a couple of other people there so we could take photographs and just enjoy the experience.

We did this walk from the camp site on the first evening after we had just put the tent up. It took a couple of hours but beautiful views on the way up.

Great place for a picnic. We had walked from Settle to Feizor and back and were looking forward to a picnic by the Foss. It was full of lots of families enjoying the warm weather and leaping off the stone ledges. We watched a while...More
