High Force Waterfall, 24th August, 2015

High Force is a spectacular waterfall in North East England. It is where the River Tees plunges some 71 feet over the Great Whin Sill. Nowadays, the flow of water is regulated by the outflow pipe(s) from Cow Green Reservoir some miles further upstream and there is normally a good volume of water pouring over the top. 185 more words

Summerhills Force

Following on from the previous post. I found Summerhills Force to be the most interesting of the three falls that we visited. There are a number of alternative tracks to walk – we only covered the right hand bank as you walk towards the falls. 171 more words

There was a lot of rain earlier this week so quite fortuitously a friend and I had decided to venture up to High Force, Low Force and Summerhills Force to capture what we though would be great images. 99 more words
