High Force


High Force suddenly and spectacularly drops 70 feet into a plunge pool below, making it England's highest uninterrupted drop of water.

The woodland walk leads to this breathtaking sight. As you begin the descent down the gentle slope the well-maintained path twists and turns giving a different view every few yards. The muffled rumble suddenly turns to a roar and the sight astounds you.

High Force commands your respect. Its power is its beauty, but it must be treated with care and children should be supervised at all times.

Gift shop, picnic area and parking available.
