Waterfalls in the Yorkshire Dales

Owing to the geology (the northern outcrops of the Whin Sill and layered limestones being particularly conducive to the formation of waterfalls) there are as a result many waterfalls in the Yorkshire Dales region. Here are some photographs of just a few:

Notable waterfalls in the Yorkshire Dales area include Hardraw Force (said to be the highest single drop "above ground" waterfall in the country) and the fall of Fell Back in to Gaping Gill (which is underground, and is believed to carry the title of highest single drop including the subterranean).

Other famous waterfalls in the Yorkshire Dales area include the (much lower, but picturesque) Aysgarth Falls and the various waterfalls on the rivers Twiss and the Doe taken in by the waterfalls walk at Ingleton.

Meanwhile, in the furthest northern reaches of the Yorkshire Dales region is the very spectacular High Force (where the river Tees drops dramatically over an outcrop of the Whin Sill).
