|Another of the waterfalls above Askrigg in Wensleydale, lying on Whitfield Gill about 1.5 miles outside the village. There is a long drop from the cliff
top down to the large pool below, from where the gill continues down
the valley over some beautiful stone pavements. The top of the cliffs
are surrounded by trees, and when this photograph was taken they were
in fine autumn colour against a clear blue sky.
As with the other Askgrigg falls, a route can be found here. Note
however on the 'dead leg' footpath signposted to Whitfield Gill Force
the most obvious path remains up high, close to the fence at the edge
of the wood. This comes to an end high up above the fall, with the view
of the water largely obscured by trees. To get to the base of the falls
watch out for a fork in the path, soon after a barn in the field
outside the wood. The right hand, less well-defined, path drops gently
down towards the stream, then follows its edge up to the base of the
fall - involving some rock scrambling as you get near.
